It hurts to say that if Renato was alive he would be 1 year old today. I just can't believe he left so young, just 4 months old when it was our time to say goodbye. I chose his name in honor of Nico, only for Renato to have the same death as Nico. Maybe I set myself up for a trap naming new life after an old death. But Renato died a much more peaceful death than Nico did, and my last few memories of Renato were of him lying in my arms only moments before he died. Nico's death lead to dreams, then half remembered nightmares and flash backs of him being disoriented by lack of oxygen to his brain and a failing heart.
Renato will always be loved and remembered.

|And, since it is Monday (Nico and Renato Monday), here is a picture of Nico dated June 30, 2014.|
