George Patrick Belling

September 22, 2022 – June 9, 2023

George Patrick “Georgie” Belling was born on September 22, 2022 and pretty quickly became the most interesting guy in the room. George’s brain led people to him, but he kept them more intrigued with his beautiful personality. George was the sweetest baby, with a gentle heart and calm demeanor that was far beyond his time. George didn’t need to make a lot of noise to make his presence known. You could just feel his sweetness, his love, and his enjoyment of life when you were near him. He would share the secrets to a meaningful life in just one cuddle session. I could have held him forever. His little body melting instantly into mine. His heart beating right next to mine. I loved being so close to him that I could smell his sweet head, kiss his chubby cheeks and put my cheek to his and hear him breathe in my ear. We were obsessed with his hands. We were always holding them, massaging them, kissing them and Will was known for putting a French fry in them.

Georgie was up for anything—a good car-ride, a trip to Target, the zoo, the children’s museum, the grocery store, Costco, visiting his daddy’s work, going on play dates with friends, the park and walks outside on the daily. We never thought we would have the opportunity to do these adventures with him one time, let alone so many times we lost count. We just kept adding fun things to do on our bucket list to honor George’s free spirit. With George, there was a seize the day feeling not only with his sense of adventure but literally in his brain.

George had refractory epilepsy that caused him to stop breathing during seizures. We would cry as we held him unable to make the seizures stop, watching his body go through tremendous feats. And George being as strong as he was; would start breathing again, rest for a while and then be awake ready for our next adventure. We are so proud of him, for what he endured time and time again and the strength he didn’t have to have but did anyways. George was remarkable in his incredible strength and simple pleasures.

George loved the sun. Whether we were on the couch, going for walks, or driving to our next adventure, George would position his face so he would soak in direct rays of sunshine. It was simple pleasures in life that George loved the most. Sunshine, loving touches, being included in his big brother and sister’s antics and adventures, listening to everyone’s conversations, sometimes adding a coo as his contribution and his favorite—snuggles. We are going to miss his snuggles.

George passed away peacefully in my arms on June 9, 2023. It was a cloudy afternoon. I think God knew it was a sad day and kept George’s sunshine away. George’s quiet presence was so beautifully loud and prevalant that losing him has left a tremendous hole in our hearts.

Georgie: Mommy, Daddy, Will and Molly will sing so loud to you every night so you can hear us. You are our sunshine and will be forever.

    I wish I could make it to pay respect to such a bright little soul. My heart is with you now and in the months and years to come. George will be basking in our savior’s eternal light and smiling just as brightly.

    Our entire division is grieving for George. He brought much light to all (especially with the pictures you sent)! He was lucky to be born into such a wonderful family!

    I have been honored to help care for George during his short life, which was so full of fun (and Target). I will miss him.
