as some of you may or may not know, I have followed the stories of some amazing little heros.
These Heros fight daily against a beast we know as Cancer.
The world is a better place because of these kids, and I'm feel so privilaged that their parents shared their children with the world.
Heaven received two more this week, and my heart is aching. I've known these boys through their families and have followed their earthly journey for over a year now.
He left this world at 10:45 pm (01/05/09) He was 5 years old
he fought HARD until the very end, not wanting to give up, but finally letting go.
Coleman said long ago, "some day I won't need NO more meds or pokes, wight mommy?” No more sweetie. You are free
He leaves behind his Parents and his twin brother Caden.
many Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, cousins, and many many Carepage friends.
and Dante (as posted by his dad..) "went with the gentle strength and iron will he has always displayed during his journey."
With his mom in bed with him holding him, and dad holding his hand and touching mom, they formed a circle...."He took three, maybe 4, more breaths and then simply stopped. There was no struggle, no distress, no pain."
dad goes on "I was so proud of him and grateful for how he faced the end. There were so many ways it could have been much worse."
He was 2 years old
These boys join countless of others that have gone before them... many of whom I've met through the internet.
My tears are falling for two little boys I've never had the privilage of meeting in person, but whom have touched my life beyond belief.
