Saying Goodbye

After only a day and a half, Eric and Jamie heard the terrible news that Kaden would not survive. Together with their family, they went to say goodbye. Each of us held him, and kissed him, and told him how much we would miss him.

My daughter will roll down that endless corridor

her arms empty, aching for her lost son

for the rest of her life.

We are all so very sad here,


and yet we must go on,

share life,

laugh, and cling to one another,

until one day we can join him.

We will miss you,

Kaden Anthony.

Our little fighter.
