It has been a rough two weeks for the Cereal Alchemist family. On February 19, my first child, Eren, was stillborn weighing 4 pounds and 11.5 ounces. Only three weeks away from his due date, the doctor shockingly informed us that Eren no longer had a heartbeat. After two days of zero sleep and a heart-wrenching delivery (my wife was very brave and is healing well), I penned a testimony to my son and our loss on Facebook. It has since been shared on the Cereal Alchemist Facebook page.
Today I feel called to share with you the eulogy I gave at Eren's memorial service. I understand that many readers might prefer not to focus on the death of an infant, but there is a light in this dark story that I think deserves to be recognized. In some small way, I pray that you would also be blessed by my son's story, which is really not his story at all.
Eulogy for Eren Jacob Highley
My wife and I appreciate your love, thoughts, and prayers.
