This is not the news I wanted to hear with tears rolling down my cheeks at least he is at peace. My heart goes out to Dan and Cindy - all 3 fought a wonderful fight. Many prayers continued and hugs from here
"I'll lend you for a little while, a child of mine," He said.
"For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he is dead.
"It may be six or seven years, or fifty two or three.
But, will you 'til I call him back, take care of him for me?
"He will bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solice for your grief.
"I cannot promise he will stay, as all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught down there, I want this child to learn.
"I've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I've selected you.
"Now you will give him all your love - not think the labor vain.
Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again.
"I fancied that I heard them say 'Dear Lord, thy will be done'
For all the joy this child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
"We'll shower him with tenderness, and love him while we may.
And for all the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
"And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand."
Our Heartfelt condolences on the passing of your beloved son..may the memories be of love, and joy in lives together..and relief he is in pain no more...prayers in your name for your loss... .....Joanne and Mark
Oh Dan & Cindy,
I'am so sorry to read this sad news this morning. I have been following Elliott since he 1st came to cruise @ddicts. I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person but felt like I had.
He had grown into such a strong young man & put up a good fight. He will be missed.
Prayers & good thoughts continue for your entire family.
