Sunday’s Paper

LauraAll Posts

We dragged our feet for a month before we were able to write Juliette’s obituary.

It appeared in yesterday’s paper.

I wanted to share it with you.

Juliette Abigail Booz May 26, 2010 – May 26, 2010 Juliette Abigail Booz died before her birth on May 26, 2010. She was 20 weeks gestation. She is survived by her father, Ryan Booz; her mother, Laura Booz; and her older sisters, Vivienne and Lia. Her grandparents, Robert and Eileen Booz, of Centre Hall, and Stanley and Ruth Nazimek, of Lansdale, love and miss her too. More than ever before, her family longs for Jesus Christ’s return. He will make all things new and they will see and embrace Juliette again. The heartache remains until then…

Services for Juliette were held privately. An online guest book can be signed or condolences sent to the family at


Although we chose Juliette’s name at the very beginning of my pregnancy when everything seemed healthy and normal, I am amazed by how perfectly suited it is to her now. Youthful one.

My sister, Erin, pulled out this poignant and heart-wrenching quotation from Romeo and Juliet:

“Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.”
– William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, 2.2
