Nathaniel Greyson Child, 10 months, was granted his angle wings while in the arms of his Mommy and Daddy on November 11, 2012 after a lifelong battle of Leukemia (bi lateral).

Nathaniel had touched so many lives. Many merely with his contagious smile; his Hospital room would be entered in the morning just to start their day.

Nathaniel's life would be short to many but those that were touched by him understood that quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His angelic smile, tiny toes and baby soft skin brought so much love and joy to our family.

Although he was tiny and frail he gave such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life he loved to be rocked and held close. He loved giving kisses and although he only spoke one word he was heard by all. He enjoyed being read stories and songs sung to him. His favorite pass time was Phineas and Ferb. Thank you Uncle Timmy.

Nathaniel Greyson was born on December 30, 2011, one of the happiest days of our lives. He was preceded in death by his great grandparents, grandpa and grandma, 2 uncles and a very special aunt.

He is survived by Mommy and Daddy, Jon and Elle Child, 7 brothers and sisters: Jorden (Amber) Child of Ogden, Trevor, Kapree, Brynlee, Gage, Bridger and Preslee Child and a very special Aunt Shayna Murray. He is also survived by his grandparents, Randy and Kaylene Taylor (Tremonton), Boyd Child (Warren), Candace Wentland (West Haven), many aunts, uncles and cousins.

I would like to give a special thank you to Aunt Wendy and Uncle Timmy for all the sleepless nights while sitting with mommy while daddy was working. '

I would like to give a special thanks to all the staff at Primary Children's Medical Center and to Dr. Richard Lemons, MD. Dr Zeinab Afify, MD. Dr. Meghann McManus DO. Dr. Hillary Isenhour, NP. and Dr Brenda Hueggen, NP. for treating my son as if he was one of their own children and not a number. Thank you and we love you!

Services for Nathaniel will be held on at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, November 17, 2012, at the West Weber Ward, 4100 West 900 South, West Weber.
Family will greet friends on Friday, November 16, 2012 from 6-8 p.m. at Leavitt's Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, and from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at the church prior to services.

Interment will follow at Warren City Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made at America First Credit Union to the Nathaniel Greyson Child Leukemia Fund.
