"Let us not forget them!"
Holy Cross Cemetery, a beautiful final resting place for thousands of Milwaukee-area Catholics, also has a deeply-moving section set aside for hundreds of babies and young children who died shortly after birth or in the early years of life. A visitor to this section will see small gravestones with engravings such as, "Our Little Angel Derek," "Our Precious Baby Girl Allison," "Our Darling Son John." In some cases, graves are decorated with little toys or stuffed animals. Some dates on the gravestones indicate the baby lived only a day or two, others a year or two.
