On Friday, we were so excited to celebrate Harley’s first Father’s Day. Ronan Anderson Jameson was born perfect at 9:20 am, 6/17/22 at a healthy 7lbs, 14oz, 20in.
Unfortunately, we only got 45 hours with our sweet son, who stopped breathing in his sleep early Sunday morning and never came back to us.
We are so grateful he chose us to be his mom and dad and that he gave us the chance to meet him and dream of our future together. We would do it all again, even for only the same few moments together. It’s the best thing we’ve ever done and the worst thing we’ve ever experienced.
Ronan, there are so many things we wanted to teach you and places we wanted to bring you and people we wanted you to meet. You were just getting the hang of being alive, and we know you did the best you could, just like we did. We wish we would’ve had longer with you, but we’re so thankful for the time we had. You are so loved. And we miss you more than we can bear to say.
We will be hosting a viewing and brief service for Ronan on Tuesday, June 28 from 10 am to noon at Bradshaw Funeral Home in White Bear Lake. We are so sorry everyone who loves him wasn’t able to meet him, so please join us if you’d like the chance. After, Harley and I and our immediate families will accompany Ronan to be cremated at Lakewood Cemetery where he will eventually be laid to rest. At the same time, we welcome anyone who would like to celebrate his brief but wonderous life at 12:30 at Wabun Picnic Shelter D in Minneapolis. We will join you after the cremation and are looking forward to leaning on you in our grief and sharing our favorite memories with our beloved baby boy.
Ronan is survived by his adoring parents, Zoë and Harley Jameson; his doting grandparents Jennifer and Eric and Buck and Kathy; his loving aunt Kaeley; his great grandparents Peggy, Carol, Tom, Kay, Vi, and Pete; and countless other family and friends. He is preceded in death by his great grandpa Nick, who was able to share in our joy when we first knew our family was expanding, and many more family and friends who we know would’ve been thrilled as well.
