Baby girl Michelle Dawn Vermaat blessed our world with her presence on August 28th, 2017 and left us shortly after at 5:00 a.m. April 22, 2018 at Riley Children’s Hospital, Indianapolis, Indiana.
Services for sweet baby Michelle will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at St Mark’s United Methodist Church, 100 State Road 46, Bloomington, Indiana. Visitation from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Sanctuary and services directly following starting at 6:00p.m.
Sweet Michelle was a beautiful baby girl who was loved by all who knew her. She always had a giggle and a smile and a sparkle in her eye. We’re thankful for her sweet precious time here on earth. But, God had bigger plans for her – like saving eight other babies lives. She was such a gift to us all and touched the lives of so many. She’ll be safe in the arms of Jesus and greeted in heaven by her Grandma Michelle.
Bless us Lord, as we pray, you took our baby girl home today. Please let her know, as we pray, how much we loved her every day. We loved her laugh, we loved her smile, we loved everything about our sweet child.
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
