James Carter Lewis, II May 27, 1976 - December 10, 1976

Age: 6 months, 13 days

James was the first son of Susie Lewis and James Lewis. He was my baby brother. He died of SIDS. One my mother’s biggest regret was not breastfeeding after learning of its advantages. Her grief endured until her death. James’s neice (my daughter) would be born 23 years later on his birthday. He is the reason behind my passion and advocacy.

    Thank you for your beautiful memorial to your baby brother. I’m sorry for the loss your family went through. It’s really neat that your daughter was born on his birthday. I wish you well in your advocacy.

      Yes, it was scary at first, but now I feel nothing but honor that I was chosen to birth her on his day. Grateful!
