Unfortuanatly he was pronounced brain dead on Monday when he was flown to TGH in Tampa, FL, he was officially pronounced dead by the medical examiner on Wednesday March 17th, 2010 shortly after 11am. He will be greatly missed and we do hope that the local police will find out the true story to what happened to him.

I did not know whether to write or not. I am sure my son received Williams Kidney and Pancreas. My son is also blond, blue eyed, and slim as your nephew. He has a 5 year old blond,haired blue eyed long legged slim little girl. My son was a diabetic since he was 2 so you can imagine the toll it took on his body. He has never in his life been able to eat one time till he was full. Then when the kidneys went he was allowed almost no food at all. For the first time he can eat and no shots. His bones are brittle from the disease but this will get better in time. We were to the point of having to call paramedics weekly the past few months and he is a normal man. We are so appreciative.WE are also saddend by the death of you Nephew. He sounds so much like my son it give me chills and I think of them both daily. He would like to contact at a later date. He is still recovering.

I signed up to receive notices of any reports on this site so I saw your post.
It has been 3 years now and my son does well. He celebrates his !other! Birthday each year on the 17 th of March. Coincidentally my sons birthday actually is March 15, thus linking the two even more as I have often thought. My son has never been able to write the letter to the family as he says he could not possibly begin to express what this has meant for him and his daughter and all of us and he also still feels horrible about your loss and thinks it would bring it all back to you.

At any rate it was so nice to hear from you and I would love to communicate with you and the family.

My family would love to hear from your son. Loosing my brother was one of the hardest things my mother has had to go threw . However when we were saying our final goodbyes to him , I was heart broken as I he was leaving me behinde I was shouting that he is a HERO. Please, I urge your son to out reach to my mother and myself. Why ? Sometimes when you have a horrible situation it can have some positivity to it and my family needs to hear this testimony ! God is good. I'm so glad that I even get to communicate with you . Please I urge your son to read this and please let him know we would love to hear from him .. This has honestly touched my heart .. You'll never undetstand how glorious this is to me . Thank you . If you would like we can communicate via email [email protected] . Please tell your son don't be afraid to reach out to my family.
