|Baldwin, Kailyn Jade
Birth: 2008-09-05 in Lewiston, Maine
|Kailyn Jade Baldwin, 19 ½ months of Leonardtown, MD and Maine, became an angel on Saturday, April 17, 2010 at Children's Hospital in Washington, DC.|
Kailyn was born September 5, 2008 at CMMC in Lewiston, ME, the beloved daughter of Brad and Casey (Black) Baldwin.
Kailyn was the beautiful redhead with big blue eyes and a radiant smile. She loved climbing into the recliner to snuggle with her Momma. She was an amazing big sister to Izabella giving her hugs and kisses and rubbing her head. When Bella would cry in the truck, Kailyn would shoosh her and rock her car seat to calm her down. Kailyn loved to work on cars with her daddy and Uncle Chris. She would put bolts into holes and find random parts to poke with a screwdriver because they "needed" to be poked. She was curious and fearless, exploring everything and everyplace she could get. She loved water from the bathtub to mud puddles, to the smallest pool of water on the porch, it was hers to play in. Kailyn loved to help Momma with everything. She would help with the dishes especially with the bubbles because they "needed" to be played with. She helped with laundry standing on a stool to hand dirty laundry to Momma and when it was done she would pull the clothes out of the dryer so she could climb in and blow her nose on the dryer sheet. Her favorite shows were Dragontales, Clifford and the Backyardigans. She loved to dance and spin in circles until she fell down laughing. She also said "hi" even if she had just seen you two minutes before. When she left, she was quick to say goodbye. Kailyn had just learned to share from her new BFF Jenna. She loved spending time with her cousins in Maine. No matter where Kailyn was or what she was doing, she lit up the room and made everyone smile. She was loved by everyone she touched. Mommy and Daddy love you baby girl and we will see you when we get there.

|Garvin, James Albert
Birth: 1932-12-20 in Liverpool, Ohio
|JAMES A. GARVIN, 77 of Hughesville, MD, died on April 16, 2010 at University of Maryland Hospital.|
Jim Garvin was born in Liverpool, Ohio on December 20, 1932, the youngest of six children. The son of Ben and Margaret Garvin. His family moved to Washington, DC when he was young and they settled in Maryland.
At an early age, it became apparent that Jim marched to the beat of his own drum. During a time when it was unheard of for young boys to have long hair, Jim chose never to cut his. His mother supported his freedom of expression-- at the dismay of his elementary school teachers. At twelve years old while enjoying sports, school, and his friends, Jim's very long hair captured the attention of Life Magazine who featured him in a special article. Jim got his first hair cut at the age 19.
He joined the Army and enjoyed telling stories of his many antics. Jim had a great sense of humor.
Jim was a career mechanic. He married the love of his life, Charlotte Anne Garvin in 1960. He loved sports and played football, softball and duckpin bowling with many of his friends. He truly cherished those years. He and Charlotte raised their three children, Jim, Tim and JP in Lewisdale, MD.
Jim was a good husband and father. He was an avid Redskin and University of MD fan. He was a baseball and football coach for his sons when they were young. He also liked playing softball at St. Mark's school.
Jim and his loving wife Charlotte traveled and enjoyed spending time with friends. Prior to his diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, Jim was a mechanic who loved to tinker and fix things. He always found value in anything and found a use for everything.
He was reliable, generous and always helped out friends and family.
Jim enjoyed his grandchildren and loved going to their sporting and music events. He was very proud of all of them.
Jim and Charlotte were happily married for 40 years. After his wife passed in 2000, Jim and his brother Bud moved in with his oldest son, Jim and his family in Hughesville, MD where he lived out his remaining years battling Parkinson's disease.
He was loved, admired and will truly be missed.
Family will receive friends to Celebrate James Life on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 from 6-8 p.m. and on Thursday, April 22, 2010 from 9-11 a.m. at Brinsfield-Echols Funeral Home, P.A., 30195 Three Notch Rd., Charlotte Hall, MD 20622 where a Memorial Service will follow at 11 a.m. Interment will follow at 12:30 p.m. at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Suitland, MD.
