All they wanted to know was what happened? There was nothing rude about that... I've had a nephew die at the age of one and if someone asked what happened i would let them know to protect their children from happening to my nephew. Y'all people are illiterate.
so true

Thought I would share:

My grandparent's lost 2 children. In both cases the kids who was almost 2 and 5 when they died where healthy and just fell dead while playing. They also had a other children who had what they were told was epilespy. Two of them died in their early adult life suddenly no real known cause.
When I was a child I also started having what my parents was told were seziures. While in my 20's I found out that it was not a seziure disorder but was a rare genetic heart condition and was most likly what caused my dad's sibling's death. My young child also has the condition. He isn't symptomic which means as of right now he has not passed out or had a cardiac arrest. He takes medicine every day in hopes that he never does. This condition is treatble with the right treatment.....

Experts belive that 5-10% of SIDS cases are caused by undiagnosised heart conditions. My advice to any parent or person who has a family history of sudden unexplained death in young people to consult your dr. Most people don't know they have it because sometimes they show no signs, until they or a relitive dies suddenly.

I don't know this family or any thing about them I just thought I would share in the hope of helping someone.
My thoughts anf prayers for this family.

I was told from a friend of family that he was born with an enlarged heart and the cause if death was just that. He died peacefully in his sleep. Plz just pray for the family to find peace and comfort through this time.

My family has a history of long Qt syndrome:
What is Long QT Syndrome (LQTS)?
LQTS is a disturbance of the heart’s electrical system. It is caused by abnormalities of microscopic pores (proteins) in the heart cells called ion channels.

Nearly half of patients with LQTS NEVER have a symptom!

What are the symptoms of LQTS?
•Cardiac arrest or fainting due to trademark cardiac arrhythmia called torsade de pointes
•Family history – of a SADS diagnosis, SADS symptoms, or sudden unexplained death of a family member under 50 years of age.

From the SADS website. www.sads.org

Sudden arrhythmia death syndromes (SADS) are genetic heart rhythm abnormalities conditions that can cause sudden death in young, apparently healthy people – who are undiagnosed. These conditions can be treated and deaths can be prevented. Warning Signs: family history of unexpected, unexplained sudden death under age 40; fainting or seizure during exercise, excitement or startle; consistent or unusual chest pain &/or shortness of breath during exercise.

SADS condition are passed down from parent to child with each child of an affected parent having a 50% chance of inheriting the condition. It is estimated the over half of the 4000 SADS deaths each year of children, teens, or young adults had one of the top two warning signs: 1) family history – of a SADS diagnosis or sudden unexplained death (usually undiagnosed and untreated)of a family member, or 2) fainting.
SADS conditions are when the electrical system of the heart is not working properly so there is an abnormal rhythm that occurs.

These conditions are:•Long QT Syndrome (LQTS)
•Brugada Syndrome
•Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT)
•Short QT Syndrome (SQTS)
•Wolff Parkinson White (WPW)

So it is a genetic abnormality that is passed on to the next generation and can kill quickly. This is a dangerous thing and should be monitored from birth for early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Once people are aware they have such a genetic condition it is their responsibility to follow up with each successive generation for medical monitoring. The same is true of many conditions. While it is tragic and horrible, such is never easy to prepare for or prevent. Thanks for informing us of this.
