I just learned this morning that the 8 month old grandson (Dylan) of one of my family's long time friends passed away last night. Dylan was diagnosed with Krabbe disease 4 months ago and they knew eventually, it would take his life. The poor sweet little guy couldn't even hold his head up anymore and had stopped eating several days ago, so they knew the time was near. How devastating not only to lose a child, but to lose that sweet baby on Christmas' doorstep.

Please keep little Dylan and his family in your prayers and those with children - don't forget to hug them every chance you get and let them know how much they are loved.

Thank you. :hug:

I remember you telling us about little Dylan. My heart breaks for any parent that suffers such a loss.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I hope this does not scare Christmas forever, but suspect it will.

How tragic! Poor little baby. It is good that Dylan is out of his pain and in a better place but it is beyond hideous for those left behind whenever a child dies. My heart bleeds for the family's tragic loss and I will certainly send my prayers to give them solace and strength during this very sad time. {{{{{Hugs}}}} to you and to all who knew and loved Dylan and his family.

Thank you all. :hug:

The viewing for Dylan is this afternoon and my daughter and I will be going. His funeral Mass will be the day after Christmas and we'll be attending that as well.

Just as I came to realize after my Ken died in October, God needed another angel to help Him in heaven and he chose Dylan. Poor sweet baby won't have to suffer anymore. :tombstone:

God bless his sweet little soul. I'm so sorry.

Last week, one of the doctor's I work with lost her 21 year old. He was to begin medical school in the spring. He texted his girlfiriend goodnight and never woke up.

May God's love surround all the families who have lost loved one's this Christmas season.

OMG Sue - how tragic!! There is no pain comparable to that of losing a child. I will keep this young man and his family in my prayers. :hug:

Here is Dylan's death notice and his picture. He was a beautiful little boy. :tombstone:

that is so sad, anytime you hear of a child dying. i will keep this family in my prayers. i couldnt imagine losing a child. i am sure its tough. i have seen what my own mother has been going thru since my brother died in 1992. she has been mad at the world for him dying. i hope this mother doesnt end of feeling that way...

many thoughts and prayers to that family and the other one mentioned by stillers.
