(January 19 – February 14, 2024)

“Archie” was born January 19 at 1:48 p.m. to parents Taylor and Elijah Laman in Brantford. After 26 days of perfection, he passed peacefully into the arms of our Heavenly Father in the early morning of February 14. In his brief life on earth, Archie touched countless lives through his sweet smiles and love of cuddling. Although we miss him dearly, his memory lives on through the donation of his heart valves to a baby in need. Archer is greeted in Heaven by his two siblings and many cousins gone too soon through miscarriage and illness. Although we mourn here, Heaven rejoices! We can rejoice also, knowing that it is only “Goodbye” for now.

Visitation will be on Thursday, February 22 from 6:00-9:00 p.m., and the funeral service will be held on Friday, February 23, at 11:00 a.m. at Cedarview Church (20 Cedar St, Paris), with interment to follow.

If desired, in lieu of flowers, we invite donations in Archie’s memory to SHYP House (Supportive Housing for Young Parents), a local Brantford foundation in support of young mothers and their children. (Visit whynotcitymissions.com/shyp – please note “In memory of Archie”)

Please keep the precious baby who received the organ donation in your prayers, that they may heal and thrive, and the Lord will give them a beautiful life.
