Angel Boy

Heart of Wings Pictures, Images and Photos

He had bright red hair, a smattering of freckles across his nose, and a shy, sweet smile. He was five years old, and in the softest voice he would call me Gigi. He was just the cutest little guy that I had been working with this year, and he passed away. He went home from school yesterday, took a nap, and didn't wake up. He had a seizure disorder, and they think that is what caused his death. I'm sick over it, and heartbroken for his family. I cannot even imagine the pain they are going through. I'm glad that I was able to spend some one on one time with him yesterday. I took him to music class, where he sat on the risers squirming while they sang "We're Going On A Bear Hunt." We walked back to class, singing on the way, his tiny hand holding mine. He will be greatly missed.

I teared after reading this. I have a nine year old brother and I can't imagine him dying young before me. (Yeah, I'm the ancient elder sister.)

I'm glad your last memory of him was a positive and uplifting one.

Do take care.

*hugs*

What wonderful grace it was for him to spend his last day on earth with you! You touched spirits and shared light. It was a beautiful gift.
