I simply ask for a raised pint for Thomas D.
« on: February 04, 2011, 08:12:29 AM »
As a precursor, this was posted on Facebook...So...

A friend of mine just lost his infant child. No details but gone nonetheless.

He just said, "We welcome Thomas D. into this world. We are so grateful for the short, but
very sweet time we shared with him. Rest in Peace little guy."

So I have a simple request. Raise a single pint in his honor. Together we'll collectively praise
a much too short lived life. One that had no chance...

Cheers to Thomas D.

Thanks.

My sister-in-law lost a baby a few months ago to what they think was SIDS. With our 6-mo old it's something that's unfortunately on our minds. It's a terrible thing - my condolences.

Will raise one tonight......

As a parent I can't even THINK about having that happen. May he rest in peace.

Heres to you Thomas. 

I lost my little brother to SIDS when I was 5 and he was 6 months.  I feel for that family, all of them.
