I am so sorry, Gretchen. I'm in a bad place as it is with questioning the fates, so to think of yet another family suffering...yes, these things happen but sometimes, every now and then, it hits home and it's so very hard to believe, let alone deal. I know all too well the wish that I could take some of the burden.

Gretchen, this was profoundly moving. I am so sorry for that sweet boy, and his parents. I'm not the praying type, but I am extremely grateful that over the next two weeks, I'll have plenty of opportunities to hug, kiss, love and appreciate the three people dearest to me in the world.

Will definitely be praying for that sweet family. As an overprotective parent, remembering that there are things in this world I can't possibly protect my children from...well it just feels awful and cruel. I can't begin to imagine what his parents are feeling.


I'm so sorry to hear this news. I was hoping that he would beat it. I will be keeping his family and friends in my thoughts. They sound like strong wonderful people that have a lovely supportive community around them.


I'm sorry to hear about the loss Gretchen. Since I'm dealing with a similar situation I understand the pain but also the gratitude that it isn't our pain that those closest are feeling. A prayer has been said for Gus and his family. And yours too since it's difficult for everyone.


My heart breaks for his family. I couldn't even imagine. Sending prayers for peace and God's love for his entire family and for your family as well.

Gus has been in my prayers for a while now. He will continue to be. Thanks for letting us know and I'm so sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry, Gretchen. The pictures of Gus are wonderful--just the way I'm sure he'd want to be remembered, as a happy kid just hanging out with his friends.


Oh, Gretchen. I'm so so sorry for Gus' family and for you. Bad things DO happen and it's so not fair. I will be thinking of you.


Oh, Gretchen. I am so very sorry for everyone who knew Gus. Of course, for his parent most of all. Cancer sucks. It just does. xoxoxo


I'm so very sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to Gus's family, to you, and to everyone who loved him.


I'm so sorry to hear of Gus' passing. No parent should out live their child. Thank you for sharing this story. I was very glad to read that Jude found comfort in his faith.


Gretchen, so sorry for you, Jude, and Gus' family. It's so unfair and hard to understand, harder to accept. Prayer helps, especially for the ones left behind. Will say one for Gus' friends and family.

At times like these, you have to hold on tight onto your faith and try to understand that there is a purpose to all things that happen in our lives. Losing someone is never easy, especially at such a young age. His life was a blessing. Let the wonderful memories survive in this time of sorrow. You have my heartfelt sympathy.
