Rachel Carlins

Our daughter, Rachel, was only 2 months old when she died from SIDS 23 years ago, but not a day goes by that I don’t feel her presence in our family.  Our family is forever changed by her brief life and the precious memories of our brief time together.  Our subsequent daughters, Sarah and Emily, know of her life and death, and our son, Matthew remembers her even though he was only 3 years old at the time.  She is a part of our history: a thread that is woven into the tapestry of our lives together.

No farewell words were spoken,

No time to say good-by,

you were gone before we knew it,

and only God knows why.

But, if tears could build a stairway,

and memories a lane,

We'd walk right up to Heaven

and bring you home again.


Love, Daddy, Granny and   Grandpa Keen

He was born a healthy and beautiful baby boy.  He had bright blue eyes and a full head of ebony hair.  He is the brother of Matthew and Brendan Martino.  He was the sparkle in our eyes and the light in our days.  September 15, 2001 came and took our precious Angel away.

Adam Michael McClain

March 25, 2007


Mother:  Erin Gillelan

Father:  Michael McClain


Our Life was blessed with this beautiful angel, Adam Michael McClain.  You came to us on December 30, 2006 and went to Heaven on March 25, 2007.  Although your stay was short, you were the most precious, happy baby, and you touched the lives of so many people.  I miss you.  My arms ache for you tremendously and the pain in my heart seems to have no relief in sight.  I am happy knowing that you are with your Grandpa Friedly.  No longer does he have to enjoy a grandchild from afar, but now he can hold one tightly in his arms.  I have peace knowing that you are with our Almighty Father and Savior.  Life, eternal, has begun for you in the best place imaginable.  We love you, Bud-Bud.  

Fly with the angels, baby you deserve it.
