DAVID THOMAS BLATTER
From the Local Paper published in Jordan, Montana, on March 4, 1993:
David Thomas Blatter, 5 months, of Jordan, died Friday, February 26, 1993, at the Garfield County Health Center. David was born in Billings on September 22, 1992, the son of Gerald Lee and Lee Ann Blatter.
David is survived by his parents, Gerald Lee and Lee Ann of Jordan; his sister, Katharine Lynn Blatter of Jordan; grandparents Lynn and Shirley Blatter of Glasgow; and many aunts and uncles.
Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, March 5, 1993, at the Hearts of Peace Cemetery in Brusett with President Steve Pluhar, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, officiating. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 4, 1993, in the chapel of Stevenson and Sons Funeral Home in Jordan. Should friends desire, memorials may be made to David's family for a headstone. Stevenson and Sons Funeral Home of Jordan is in charge of arrangements.
A neighbor recalls attending the graveside services and being heartsick as she watched big tears rolling down the face of David's little sister, Katharine. She was unwilling to allow her father to comfort her because she was unable to understand that when he left the house carrying David he was going to get help for him. The little girl associated her father with her baby brother's death, and was struggling to understand that he wasn't the cause.
A nurse on duty at the hospital when David's father rushed him in for emergency help decorates his tiny grave on a regular basis.
David had some kind of lung condition that required him to be on oxygen for most of his short life, if not all of it.
