Gideon James Mehlhop was born on September 9, 2021, in Glencoe, Minnesota. He was the son of Angie Schuft and Steven Mehlhop. Gideon was baptized on September 26, 2021, by Pastor Storm at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis. For every life there is a story. Some stories are longer than others; but it can be surprising how much impact a life can have on others in a very short time.
Gideon had a personality even though he had a very short time to express it. That is an experience that a father and mother never forget. He had tiny fingers, feet and toes that will never be forgotten. He loved to smile when his mom sang him “You are my Sunshine”. Gideon James Mehlhop took a piece of our hearts with him to heaven.
Gideon passed away Thursday, November 18, 2021, at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 2 ½ months.
