I am terribly sorry to hear of your loss. I could not imagine losing a child. I pray that God will give you peace and comfort through this. Praying for you.

I read this with tears in my eyes and a breaking heart. As a new parent, I cannot fathom the joy of your child's arrival and their sudden loss in so little a time. Please take comfort in their ascension to the Lord, that he is with Christ now and looks down upon you with love and guidance. Your family is in my heart and my prayers.

My condolences go out to the family of this little Angel... It's tough losing someone, but a child is even tougher... To the parents, family, & friends... I am deeply sorry for your loss... Be with each other in the this time of need... Be strong for one another... God makes NO mistakes, so keep that in mind... I know it's tough, but be strong and you all will be fine... Alex is in a MUCH better place now!!!
