Knapp, Miranda Helen Reine

March 1, 2014 – June 28, 2014

Our beautiful baby daughter Miranda passed away suddenly on Friday June 28, 2014 at 2am in Singapore just shy of her 4 month birthdate of viral respiratory infection.

She was just so gentle and beautiful with huge blue eyes, long eyelashes and a wide-eyed look and smile. She had just started to coo to us and smile in the morning, and rolling onto her stomach.

Words cannot describe the emptiness and grief we feel for her loss, and for being so far away from our families and friends in Canada. This all happened while I was in Vancouver and Jocelyn bore more than she ever should alone until I got back last night at midnight.

We are playing with her twin brother Gage now, who was also admitted to Gleneagles Hospital with the same virus for three days. We are very, very lucky to have him in our lives.

We will be all move back to Vancouver at the end of July and look forward to being together again with all our friends. Thank you so much for the condolences we have received, they mean so much to us far away from home.

Our deepest gratitude to Annie Lundin for racing to Jocelyn’s side with Martin Hawthornthwaite, and to my eldest son Keane who came to be with me and take me to the airport in Vancouver with his mom, my ex-wife Nancy Chew. Thank you being there when we needed you most.
