Vailan Jacobus Chelvakumar Krijger passed on November 22nd 2019. He was born May 23rd 2019. During his 6 months with us he touched many lives and was deeply loved by friends and family. He enjoyed cuddling with his parents and auntie, playing with his dog/big sister Sadie, facetiming with his grandparents, and pounding bottles of milk whenever possible. His giggle was one for the record books and so were his burps.His favorite games were “up/down” and watching Sadie fetch her toy.
His father Ben Krijger/Kryger and mother Gayathri (Gaya) Chelvakumar love him dearly and will hold him in their hearts forever.
