As I set here and read this, it takes me back when my sweet boy past with cancer. Brandon was a Downs child and live a full life till he turned 35. On Sept.17,2018 we were told our boy had cancer and had just a few days to three weeks to live, he went home to be with the Lord Oct.15,2018. I didn’t think I could keep going without my sweet boy, but God’s Grace, Mercy, and Love I have walked all most a year without my son. He is at rest and so is your sweet boy. God has taken all the pain away. He will walk each day He will make each step you take easier. You never get over it, but you learn to be at Peace! God Bless!
I’m so sorry to hear about sweet little Landon. He will be missed. God gained a beautiful little angel . Terri Pressley
