I saw the story of the sorrow that your family and friends have endured. What a beautiful little man and wonderful family. Even though we will never know each other personally, my heart is very heavy and sends you comfort at this difficult time. What a blessing you had to know Kayson even though only for a very short time. And even though words are just words, please know they are heartfelt and with hope each day gets a little brighter for your family. Sincerely, Sherri Rhoads-Omaha, NE.

I just read the news of this and i am so heart broken. I was there visiting myself Saturday and took a photo of that statue on the curb, it stuck me as odd that that was the only store with items so far into the walkway.

This just made me cry. So cute and sweet-looking. I know he is with Jesus now, and happy. Mom and Dad will be with him someday.

I can’t begin to imagine the pain. Your little boy was a beautiful child. I pray God can give you the strength you will need to endure. Prayers for your whole family.
