Thank you to the reporter for a heartwarming story about Christian's spirit, his beautiful life and devoted family. Rest in peace, sweet boy. I never met you, but your smile gives a good indication of the joy you brought to those who now celebrate your life and mourn your loss. I was especially touched by his dad sleeping in a recliner so that he wasn't ever alone.

This story is heartbreaking not heart warming. Anyone who allows such suffering when they can stop it is pure evil.
