____________ graced this earth for three months and four days. Not a long time at all when compared to the biblical span of three--score and 10 years. Three months and four days is not a long enough time. They'll agree: three months and a few days is too short. Too short for ____________ to learn to walk and talk, to read and ride a bike. That's part of our pain as we mourn ____________ too--soon death: we expect and assume that children will flourish and grow, but ____________ life was too short for that to do anything more than begin to happen.
