August Warren Graham, of Lexington, Kentucky, age two months and four days, passed away due to complications from a Congenital Heart Defect called Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, VSD, and MAPCAS on Motherís Day, Sunday May 13, 2018. He was born Friday March 9, 2018, at University of Cincinnati and spent the first month of his life at Cincinnati Childrenís Hospital where he bravely endured his open-heart surgery and three heart catheterizations. August had a wonderful month at home with his loving family getting to enjoy all the day-to-day activities of the Graham household.
August had the most beautiful bright blue eyes that filled his Mom and Dadís heart. A snuggle bug who loved to be held by anyone, but was very comfortable in his big brothersí arms. His unexpected passing has been felt far and wide by all that have come to know his story and followed his heart journey.
Left to cherish his memory are his parents, Ryan and Cassie Graham; brothers, Elliott and Declan; grandparents, Richard and Connie Graham, Steve and Jeannie Hancock; two great grandmothers and a great-great grandmother, aunts and uncles and countless family and friends who faithfully supported his courageous life. His parents are sustained knowing they will one day hold their baby boy again, upon Christís return, when there is a perfected heaven and earth and there is an end to all suffering.
A celebration of Augustís short life will be held at Kerr Brothers Funeral Home, 3421 Harrodsburg Rd, Lexington, KY 40513 from 5 Ė 7 pm, May 15, 2018, and graveside services at 10:30 am on May 16, 2018, at the Lexington Cemetery.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Cincinnati Childrenís Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House of Greater Cincinnati for all of their care and support. Although flowers are loved by the family, the family asks that memorial contributions are made to the Ronald McDonald House of Greater Cincinnati or Kerrington's Heart so that more awareness and research can help put an end to the number one birth defect of children; Congenital Heart Defects.
