Jenna Grace's obit

We decided on the advice of many to put an obituary in the newspaper where I work. I think it will be the best way to handle it. I've e-mailed the information to my editor, so she will get it in on Wednesday.

I wrote it myself, so I hope it's ok. I tried not to put too much personal information in it, just the facts. Here it is:

Belinc, Jenna Grace was stillborn Aug. 12 at Middle Tennessee Medical Center in Murfreesboro. She was the daughter of Brian and Tamara Belinc of the Flat Creek Community. She is survived by one sister, Tessa Kate Belinc; grandparents Bobby and Patricia Blackwell of Shelbyville and Martin and Joann Belinc of Pope, Miss; uncle and aunt Tyler and Melissa Green of Shelbyville; uncle, Marty Belinc of Sarah, Miss.; and aunt Erin Blackwell of Shelbyville. She was preceded in death by her great-grandmother, Alethea Green of Shelbyville, and her grandfather, Thomas H. Martin of Lynchburg. Feldhous Memorial Chapel was in charge of cremation. A memorial service will be held Aug. 24 at 3 p.m., at Smith Chapel Methodist Church with Jack Carney officiating.

I know my grandfather, who really hasn't had much to do with me my whole life, reads our paper, so he will see this. I wonder if it will bring him to contact me.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my son at 37 weeks from Trisomy 18 - no-one knew until after he passed that he was sick.
It is just the worst thing to endure.
I wish you peace and love as you deal with your heartbreaking loss.
