Carter John Gaton

Carter John Gaton, infant son of Danielle M. Hetrick and Kyle R. Gaton, was stillborn on Thursday, November 5, 2015 at Penn Highlands Elk in St. Marys.

Kyle and Danielle were blessed with a guardian angel. He is the most precious gift they have ever received and know that he’s watching over them. Their hearts are filled with love and happiness, and will forever be in their hearts.
