Olivia's Memorial Service

We are sorry that it has been a little while since our last post (hopefully, you are all still checking in on occasion), but we wanted to make sure that we had all of the information regarding Olivia's memorial service available before we posted anything.

We will be having a memorial service for Olivia at Our Lady of Mount Carmel (14596 Oak Ridge Road, Carmel, IN) this Saturday, January 9th, at 12 noon (Eastern Time).  A visitation will be held in the church from 11-12 before the memorial begins at noon.

Also, many of you have asked if you can do anything to help us honor Olivia.  We have decided to donate to the Riley Hospital for Children.  If you would like to make a donation as well, please do so to the Riley Children's Foundation and fill out the memo line to read NICU Family Support - Olivia Burns.  Checks can be mailed to:

Riley Hospital for Children
Attn: Susan Sears
Section of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
699 West Drive, RR 208
Indianapolis, IN 46202-5119

If you would prefer to make your donation online, please refer to the following website:

The gift is to benefit "Riley Children's Foundation", In memory of Olivia Burns.  We also request that under Additional Comments you add "In Memory of Olivia Burns to support the Riley NICU Family Support Program Memory Boxes".

We continue to thank you for all your support!

Dear Adam and Jodi, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Olivia and the wonderful photos of her brief life with you. She was special in many ways, not the least of which was in the degree to which her pre and post-birth life brought such love and devotion from you that was so inspiring to all who know you, including Deb and me. On this day of her memorial service, Deb and I extend our sympathy to you for your loss, but also rejoice with you for the unforgetable joy her time in this life brought you. You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers as you adjust to life without Olivia. May the "peace that passes all understanding" be yours today and in the days ahead, knowing that she is with the Lord. -Warren and Deb Knoles
