Jensen Avery Watson, precious baby boy of the parents of Brent and Brooke Watson was born into the arms of angels August 14, 2020 at 10:05 A.M. at Andalusia Regional Hospital. Born at 39 weeks he weighed 9lbs 7oz and was 23 inches long.

“Some people dream of angels, but we got to hold ours in our arms on August 14th. Jensen was so perfect in every way you could possibly imagine. From his head full of hair, his chubby cheeks, long body, long fingers and toes like his daddies. Just a perfect gift from God. Although you never spent any time with us on earth you are very loved and missed already. We were able to hold you, give you all of the kisses you deserved and say our goodbyes to your precious soul. We will forever love you Jensen Avery Watson with every ounce in us and we can’t wait to meet again.

Love mommy & daddy”
