KINGSFORD - Elaina Marie Taff was born on Monday, Feb. 25, 2013, at 4:34 p.m. to parents Jeff and Chantel Taff of Kingsford. Elaina's birth was at Bellin Memorial Hospital in Green Bay, Wis. She weighed 3 pounds, 7 ounces and was 16 inches long. Elaina's family was blessed with a little more than 11 hours with Elaina, until she was born into her heavenly home at 3:43 a.m., on Feb. 26, 2013. Elaina experienced holding hands with her mommy and daddy, and hugs and kisses from her family. She listened as her mommy and daddy sang to her and told her "I love you" an uncountable number of times. She was held and cuddled and loved, and we will miss her. We will especially miss her "baby smell."
Elaina is deeply loved by her mommy and daddy, her big brother, Jackson; her grandparents, Dave and Shelly and Fred and Paula; her great-grandparents; her aunts and uncles; her extended family and friends; and many others.
Elaina Marie will always remain her parents' precious baby girl and Jackson's little sister, "baby Laina," and we are comforted knowing we will hold her again in heaven one day.
Elaina Marie's family wishes to thank the entire staff at Bellin Memorial Hospital for their kindness, compassion and professionalism during this very sad and difficult time.
A memorial service will be held for Elaina Marie Taff at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 10, at Grace Baptist Church in Kingsford. A light luncheon will follow at the church.
Donations may be made to the family of baby Elaina. They can be sent to Grace Baptist Church, 1295 Pyle Drive, Kingsford, MI 49802.
