In Loving Memory of
Braxton Buzz Olpin
Born to Heaven January 4, 2006

This is a beautiful and loving gift for Angel Braxton from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.

Only Memories

I have a need to speak of you
A need to say your name.
Since you were born just months ago
Our lives haven�t been the same.

I have a need to see your face,
A need to touch your hair.
I want to hold you in my arms
So much, but you�re not there.

The sadness is still deep inside,
Can�t help the way I fell.
You are, and always will be mine
My love for you is real.

For now I have your pictures
And the sad, sweet memories.
I guess my needs will have to wait
So I�ll be content with these.

I am not sure how we came up with the name Braxton we just liked it, but I always knew that my son was going to have the middle name
of Buzz. That was my Grandpa's name, and he was one of my very best friends. Grandpa passed away 10 years ago this past April.


To Mommy and Daddy�s Little Angel

Even though we had to say goodbye,
before we could say hello�
And ask ourselves may times �why�
our little angel you had to go.

We never got to know you,
and for us that�s a great loss.
Accompanied by heartache and emptiness,
That will never be forgot.

We�ll think of you during sunsets,
and during our very first snow,
You�ll be in our hearts forever,
and how much you�ll be missed, you�ll never know.

We think of you often, our darling,
sometimes we cannot quit.
It makes us feel a little closer,
though� just a little bit.
All we have now to hold onto
is a set of precious little prints
That belong to a special angel in heaven
who is constantly missed.

We cannot wait to see you, our baby,
in the heaven above�
We cannot wait to fill your heart,
with lots and lots of love.

Our Little Miracle


Our beloved little Braxton Buzz Olpin lived just a short time on this earth.
He was born January 4, 2006 in Logan and passed away a few minutes after his birth.
Braxton was born to Clinton Daniel and Jennifer Westover Olpin.

Remembering precious angel Braxton and sending love and prayers to his family.

These three loving gifts for Angel Braxton are from my friend Marie.

This beautiful Thanksgiving gift to Angel Braxton is also from my friend Marie.

I wish you could all see how much Braxton Buzz looks like his Dad. He was the spitting image of his Dad, right down to the red curly hair and blue eyes.
He looked so much like him and his Dad is so very proud of his Braxton Buzz.

I love the picture of him in his blanket. It shows how perfect and big he was for as early as he was. The doctors kept telling me
he was going to be deformed, but he was not. Braxton Buzz is a perfect little angel.

Happy Birthday Angel Braxton!

Born Too Soon

When I learned you were inside of me,
So many thoughts of what could be.
But, then one fateful afternoon,
I went into labor, much too soon.

The doctors did all that they could,
But, all their trying, did no good.
And in that sterile birthing room,
You entered this world, much too soon.

We never got to hear your cry,
Family gathered to say good-bye.
No celebrations or balloons,
Our beautiful baby, born too soon.

With the morning and the dawn,
The dreams we had for you were gone.
In the nursery, babies cried in tune,
But, ours was silent, born too soon.

Leaving that place with empty arms,
Just your baby bracelet and some charms.
A quilt scented with your sweet perfume,
Remnants of a life, gone too soon.

Friends and family come, but don't stay,
No one knows what to do or say.
Our waking thoughts are all consumed,
With our miracle that left too soon.

The days and months, drag slowly by,
We've questions, but get no reply.
We seek solace in the stars and moon,
Looking for our angel, born too soon.

Happy Birthday To YOU!

This blanket is one that I cross-stitched for Braxton Buzz. I started it when I was on bed rest with him. I was working on it in the hospital the morning he was born. After he died, I put it away unfinished. I could not bear to look at it. But I pulled it out one day and finished it off and gave it to my Mom for Mother's Day. We wanted her to have something of her grandson's.

Braxton Buzz's room was done in frogs. So the day he was born my 10 year old niece bought him that frog and gave to us for him. Clint and I decided we did not want to bury it with him because it was some thing of his that touched him, so we kept it. But we wanted to always have the frog with him that his cousin gave to him, so we had it carved on his grave.

I snuck into your room late last night hoping to catch you sleeping.
I wanted to reach down and touch your hair, just to know you were there.
How I longed to take you in my arms and tell you how much I care.
But my sweet baby you were not there.

I dreamed of holding you in my arms, and looking into your sweet face.
I would wonder what you were dreaming about.
But my sweet baby you were not there.

I reached down for your blanket; your fragrance still lingered there.
As the tears came to my eyes, I picked up a picture of you.
But my sweet baby you were not there.

I�ll never forget the day you came into my life,
for the short time you were here.
The love I felt for you was so real.
Each night I pray you will never forget the love I have for you.
For my sweet baby you are not here.

As turned to walk out of your room;
I found myself wondering if the angels rocked you to sleep tonight.
Do they give you all the love you need?
Do they tell you stories of your Mom and Dad?
For our sweet baby we are not there.

I wrote this above poem in memory of my sweet son Braxton Buzz Olpin. He was born on January 4, 2006. He returned to live with his Heavenly Father
just a short time after birth. Your Mom and Dad love you, Braxton Buzz, and will never forget you.

This is the outfit we buried Braxton in. A very good friend of the family made it for him. The booties were knitted by my friend's Grandma. She rewrote her pattern so that they would fit his tiny little feet just perfect. His feet were 2 inches from heel to toe. The blanket in the back ground was the blanket that I crotcheted for him. This was the blanket we were going to wrap him in when we had him blessed. Instead we wrapped him in it to lay him to rest. He looked so handsome in his outfit, booties, and was very wrapped up in that big blanket.

This indian is one of the wood carvings that my mom has done. This piece of wood came from High Creek. This is from the only Black Walnut tree to ever have grown up there.
My Grandpa Buzz brought this log to my mom about 13 years ago. Shortly after we lost our Braxton Buzz,
she carved this in Memory of him.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil; for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

For the Olpin family and your Angel Braxton. May God bless and comfort you.

Dear Angel Mom
I saw your little Braxton's webpage and I was so deeply touched
that I had to make something special for him. I made this gift in sweet memory of him.
I know in my heart that he was a special little angel from heaven
that came for a short time to leave his heart prints behind.
Your life will be forever touched by his spirit which will forever be a part of you.
Made with love
Ann, Laurasmom
