My heart goes out to Oilhammer and family during this time.

Reading Oilhammer posts one could easily see how the guy has a big heart caring as his posts reflect.

My prayers tonight for Brian and his family. A reminder to me to express love for children, innocent lambs of God.

God Bless All.

I know Oilhammer is grateful for all the support of this community, it is a heart-warming thing to see.
Thank you for posting the link Dozenspeed. Learned something new as well.

As a father with a son who has CCHS i know the feeling going through life with a child who could also be swept away so devastatingly like this.

My heart and soul aches from hearing this news.
If there is anything i could do i would. I'm not a religious man but tonight i will have a drink for dear Noah and O.H.s family. So extremely sad to hear of a young life leaving us.
I don't want to make this post about me but it seems like this year 2020 is the worst year i have seen so far, many friends of mine have lost their lives, nothing to do with covid.

Also if anyone is curious about Lowe's Syndrome\

OH i sincerely hope you and your family the best and that somehow you all can make it through this horrible time. Nothing anyone can say or do to make this better i understand that. I'm soooo sorry.

Brian,
While I cannot even begin to understand the pain you and your wife must be going through I admire both of you for all the wonderful years and life you have given to both your children who most probably are watching down over you waiting for the day to be reunited again in another life. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife during this grieving time.

Brian, I am so sorry to hear of this sad news and your loss (again). It's a parent's most heartbreaking sorrow to outlive a child - unthinkable to lose another three years later.

No words could sufficiently comfort you and your wife, but let me offer the words of the Apostle Paul as he was staring at his own imminent mortality:
7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Timothy+4:7-8&version=NIV

The Lord comfort you in this difficult time, my friend, and know that all of us at TDIClub stand by you.
Dave.

My condolences to you and your family. I hug my kids tight every night and count my blessings. I don't know if I could do what you do. To out live your kids is one of the worst things for a parent. Blessings and hope are well.
