Not lost

Why is it that when a baby or young child dies people say they are lost? "We lost the baby." As if they are an item that was misplaced. I have even said it myself and every time I do, I cringe. We would never say that of an older individual. "I lost my Grandma?", I don't think so. So why do we "lose" our babies?  When babies die they are not lost and as a Latter-day Saint I know for certain this is true. Seven years ago Davie was born. 40 minutes later he died and I know right where he is.

Happy Birthday, Davie!
