We are at a total loss for words. Theodore peacefully passed away in our arms late yesterday morning. He suffered pulmonary hemorrhage and his heart just couldn’t handle the stress. Things were going great right up until they weren’t, we were even able to change his diaper the night before. We had all the hope in the world and the doctors did everything they could for our sweet, beautiful angel, but Jesus called upon him to return, and so he has.

We are going to take some time away from the world to process the loss of our greatest love. Thank you for all your steadfast prayers and support in this trying week. It was a miracle we made it so far in the first place, and every moment was a precious gift. You are forever perfect, my son.

There are no words. He was, and still is, beautiful whether on Earth or in Heaven. What a joy to have known him! 🙏

Fren, this is heartbreaking. I am literally crying for and with you. My heart is heavy, yet I feel some comfort in knowing that you and your wife know Jesus and know precious little Theodore is with Him now. May God grant you peace and assurance at this time. Please do take a break from the world and hold each other and mourn your son. And take some comfort in knowing that someday you will be reunited with him for eternity. God bless you.

As David said, he cannot come back and see me, but one day I will see him. As long as we have Christ, death is a temporary good bye, till we have an eternal embrace with Christ our King.

I think God will also let them finish raising their child later. Life doesn’t end with death and God is very kind and loving

Raising a child in heaven sounds amazing. Lord knows it beats raising them here in this valley of tears.

I believe the same. With God, nothing is lost. All good things will be restored to us and these tough times will be forgotten. My wife has seen the other side. This is her favorite painting of paradise... https://pin.it/6lYXNOL

On earth we grieve, even with faith that someday we still understand. Praying for you and your family.

Theodore captured many hearts in his brief time here, my own included. Rest easy little guy. Prayers for you and your family.

AmberWins 20 points ago +20 / -0

About an hour ago I was thinking of your family. I'm not even going to try and cobble together some flowery words to convey any sentiment at all because there are no words. My heart breaks for you. In the days and weeks ahead as you grieve you may experience many low lows. Please remember during those times that our prayers still surround & will uplift you all, and you're never alone.

Joys1Daughter 12 points ago +12 / -0

I agree Amber. Words seem so inadequate during times of sorrow like this .

Dearest Mom & Dad, Please know that your family here loves you. We are lifting you up in prayer and our hearts are heavy for the loss of your precious Theodore.

Our Father in Heaven is gently holding Theodore in his loving arms. He won't fail you. Just call out to Him when you need support. He is ALWAYS there.

God Bless & Keep your family! 🙏👆

I am deeply moved and so very sorry for your loss, fren. I said prayers for Theodore and when I saw his picture, I cried tears of joy. I am still crying but I know he rests in the arms of Jesus. I am forever praying for you. May sweet Theodore rest in peace and rise in Glory. Amen

So sorry for your loss. Prayers.

I saw the picture of your Teddy and wanted him to survive so bad!!! I prayed and will continue to pray for him and you. Our 2nd, 1 year old, is named Theodore, “Teddy” and he was a Csection right after my wife had Covid. He’s much smaller than his older brother - but he’s healthy.

God’s plan is so hard sometimes.. but we have to have faith that it’s what we need. Wish I understood it more.

Lifting you and your loved ones up to the Father in prayer for comfort in the loss of your son in Jesus name Amen.

I am so sorry...🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

EthelBarrett 18 points ago +18 / -0

I am so sorry to hear this.. You said it perfectly. I thank God Theodore's time with you was all that a baby should have: love and hope and trusting God. You, as parents did great. You have done everything that you could: entrusted him to God. I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I've committed unto him. Now rest, and may God comfort you both. (((Prayers)))

magachudd 18 points ago +18 / -0

I am so sorry to hear this. Your Theodore is in the best place he can be anyway right now. With God. My heart goes out to you at this time.
