Jamie Fontenot’s father, James Lee Grimmett, passed away on January 12th, 2018, reports CBS News.
Jamie was present at the hospital for her father’s passing. In response, she wrote a heartfelt letter for a nurse to deliver to the next baby born in the hospital.
“To my dad’s angel, even though I will never know your name, you are the first child born here after my dad’s passing,” it reads. “When one life is taken, another is given. Please keep my dad in your prayers.”
The first baby born after James’ passing? Kingston Hall, whose parents Connie and Benjamin could not think of a middle name — until they received Jamie’s letter.
Hospital workers informed Jamie that she could meet the baby, her “father’s angel.” Shortly after Kingston was born, Jamie met the Hall family and was able to hold little Kingston.
“Family is everything, and if you don’t have faith you don’t have anything,” Jamie says.
