Baby William Charles Knapper

“There is no footprint too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.”

Born sleeping on 21st March 2021, a moment in our arms, a lifetime in our hearts. William was loved by all his family, especially by Mum Lucy and Dad Jon.

Little Butterfly

I lived my life inside you,
Cocooned in all your love,
So mama, papa, please don’t cry,
I’m still with you, just up above.

I felt your every heartbeat,
It’s my sweetest melody,
And for every heavenly bedtime,
The Angels play it back to me.

I know how much I am wanted,
I feel so very blessed,
Of all the parents in all the world,
I got the very best!

You think of me in your waking hours,
And on those sleepless nights,
Just look out the window and you’ll find me,
The brightest star, the most dazzling light.

I’m that little breeze in summer,
I’m that unexpected white feather,
I plucked it from my downy wings,
So that you remember we’re always together.

I know how much it hurt your soul,
When we had to say goodbye,
But I’m not gone, I’m always here,
I’m your sweet little butterfly.

Due to the current restrictions a private funeral service will take place at St. James’ Church,  on Friday 16th April 2021 at 12:30pm.
