Brody River went to be with the Angels at 3:36 p.m., Saturday, February 15, 2014, at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
He was born February 14, 2014, at West Plains, Missouri, to Brian Shane Barry and Brittney Dawn Alsup Barry.
We thank God for loaning us one of His Angels for two days. Brody River was only with us for such a short period of time, but he will live in our hearts forever. How could a baby touch so many people and affect so many lives unless it was truly a gift from God. He was born on Valentine’s Day and he taught us how to love more deeply than we ever thought possible. We will never forget you Brody River.
