I wanted to thank all of you for your prayers. God did hear them, but answered in a way that was different than what we wanted. Trent went to be with the Lord yesterday at 2:29pm, surrounded by his family.

The follow up testing yesterday morning showed no brain activity and the Dr. said there was nothing that could be done. Terry and Sandra made the difficult decision to give their baby boy back to God. All of their family was able to be there and say goodbye in their own way before they released him and Terry, Sandra, and their two daughters even had a last family picture with him.

Their daughter Emma is old enough (4 yrs old) to know and understand what has happened and it has been EXTREMELY hard on her. She apparently hid in a closet and cried for quite a while. Please pray for her and her baby sister Eva (3 months) as they learn to adjust to life without Trent. He was an adorable and very joyous little boy, even in the midst of his sickness.

Please continue to pray for the whole family as they make preparations for Trent and as they ALL learn to continue living without him. Losing a loved one is so hard, but losing a young child is unimaginable. Thank you again for all your prayers, the family appreciates them all.

I just came across you blog by clicking on your name on Tami's blog. I searched Trent's name and 2posts came up. I want to say thank you for posting a prayer request for him. It brought tears to my eyes. It's been 8 months and still doesn't seem real. I hope all is well with you. Thanks again, with love Sandra.
