Joshua Hicks
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

Please light a candle for my angel

This memorial website was created in the memory of our much loved baby boy, Joshua Paul James Hicks was born in Hull, in United Kingdom on November 15th 2006 at 6pm and fell asleep on November 16th 2006 at 11.30am, we were blessed to have Joshua with us for 17 short hours but we will love and miss him for eternity . 

Joshua was our much wanted & waited for miracle baby. I found out i was pregnant on 18th March 2006 just 3 days before my 27th Birthday it was he best present i could have wished for. I had a perfect pregnancy no problems at all, I carried Joshua for 39 weeks and 2 days. 

I loved being pregnant feeling every move my baby boy made and being kept awake when he had hiccups. I used to play Mozart to him through my belly every night because i thought that if he had some music he could asociate with it would help settle him when he was born. Paul (Joshua's Daddy) used to read 'The Hungry Caterpillar' story to my tummy while we laid in bed so Joshua would be able to recognise his Daddy's voice.

Before we went for our 20 week scan we both said we didn't mind if it was a boy or a girl but i knew Paul secretly wanted a boy, when the midwife who was performing the scan told us we were having a boy Paul was o excited he was like a little kid, he started talking about all the father & son things they could do.

We also had a 4D scan when i was 30 weeks pregnant and it was the most amazing thing we had ever seen. You could tell on the scan that Joshua would look like his Daddy, we saw him moving, we saw him smile he even stuck out his tongue, it was amazing and so beautiful to see all that before he was born.

(Joshua sticking his tongue out)

Joshua was born on 15th November 2006 5 days before his due date, weighing a healthy 8lbs 10oz measuring 52cm and was perfect in everyway. He was such a beautiful baby. Joshua had a traumatic birth which caused his problems. He fell asleep in mine and his daddys arms and with all his grandparents around him. Our world was torn apart and our hearts were broken and they will never be fully whole again.

Joshua was a planned baby and he was wanted so much, not only by us but by his grandparents and other family. He will never be forgotten and he will be missed forever. 

Joshua made me a Mummy for the 1st time and that makes him extra special. He will always be my baby and one day i will be in heaven with him and be able to look after him like a Mummy should.

You are my sunshine

I love you my baby. xxx

Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Son's arms
and tell him they're from me.
Tell him I love him and miss him,
and when he turns to smile,
place a kiss upon his cheek
and hold him for awhile.
Because remembering him is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

His legacy
What Joshua gave his Mummy  

In the short time he was here Joshua made me feel pure joy and showed me what unconditional love is like. He is a bond between me and his Daddy Paul that will never break or fade.

Joshua left me with such heartbreak but also with such a deep love for a little boy that will never grow tall or get old or be ill and one that will never be forgotten.

I love you baby boy

A little boy, no longer a baby  
My beautiful boy I am sure you would be embarrassed by being called beautiful when you are a big 4 years old and if you was here now i can just imagining your reaction. Its sad that all i have is my imagination. Imagining what you would look like imagining what you would be doing how you would be speaking and how you would get on with your sisters. I hate that you never had a chance of a life to know what it feels like to walk on wet sand to paddle in a cold sea or to pick on your sisters. No one will ever know how brave or clever or funny you would have been. I miss you so much my only son. I will love you for ever and a day 'you are my sunshine' Love Mummy xxxxx
You made me strong  
Darling Joshua

When you fell asleep i didn't know how i was going to get through the next few hours never mind the following days and weeks but a month on and i am getting through it. It's not easy in fact its the hardest thing i have ever done and somedays i don't think i can do it, but i am getting through it and i am doing it, you are what keeps me going, you are my strength. 

I have had to some of the most painful, terrible things any new mummy should ever had to do but i have done them for you. I helped organise your funeral, i helped choose your headstone, i visit the cemetary everyday just for you. All these were so hard for me to do when i had only just given birth to you. 

Because of you my darling precious brave boy i have found a strength in me that i never knew i had, and i know that because i am getting through this i can get through anything else that life throws at me, there can't be anything worse than carrying a baby for 9 months and then having him pass silently away in your arms after only a few short hours.

I miss you being in my tummy and i miss you being in my arms.

I love you angel
