Here are the words of a father.
Not Like This
Dad again here; a few weeks ago we learned that bad news had gotten worse. The doctors initially thought that we maybe had a couple of months left with Layla, but instead it was going to be more like two weeks.
Still, we kept praying expecting a miracle. Never give up hope, that’s our motto. God doesn’t bring the bad, he brings the good. But we knew in the back of our minds that it might be part of God’s plan for her to return home to Him. It’s not too much of a stretch to believe that God’s work with Layla here on earth is nearly complete. She’s brought people closer to their families, closer to God, Shanna and I closer to each other. Lots of people have been touched by her. Lots and lots of people. Shanna and I still look at the number of Twitter followers she has and can’t grasp it. It’s unreal.
When we took Layla home to pass, the hospice doctors and Dr. R told us what to expect. It’s not easy to sit at home and watch your child die. Our only wish was that if Layla was going to pass, that it be in peace. It hasn’t exactly been like that. Layla’s pain has been difficult to manage................

It is their story and I will let them control the whole post. It is worth checking out.
