Henry Michael Swenson was born July 7, 2010 at 3:29 p.m. weighing 6 lbs. 9 oz. and 20 in. long. Our family was given the gift of spending 34 beautiful hours with Henry. We have been given the knowledge that Henry is a choice spirit who has a special mission to fulfill. Our testimony in the assured salvation and exaltation of infants has lightened the burden of losing our infant son. We understand that our sacrifice will allow Henry to accomplish a special mission for our Heavenly Father that will bless many other spirits.
On July 9, 2010 at 12:15 a.m., after struggling for many hours and being comforted in our arms, Henry returned to his Heavenly Father. Michael and I would like to invite all of our friends and family to celebrate Henry’s life at a graveside service on Wednesday July 14, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. at the Spanish Fork City Cemetery.
We cannot thank our family and friends enough for the loving thoughts, support, and prayers. The fasting and prayers of our family and friends helped us make the hardest decisions of our lives. In addition, the support we have received has significantly reduced our grief and burden of loss.
