Tonight has been very sobering thus far. I was contacted today by a fellow special needs father and good friend of mine Josh. I haven’t known him very long but I have grown to respect him tremendously. He lost his beautiful little boy last night. Kade was 3 years old and passed away in his sleep from what they believe was a seizure. I don’t even know what to say. This is absolutely heartbreaking for me as a father. To lose a child is the worst thing imaginable. My heart just breaks for them right now.
About 20 minutes ago I got a message from an old friend from my fire fighting days. He informed me that a fellow firefighter friend of ours passed away today after battle with cancer. I didn’t even know he was sick. I have lost touch with so many people over the years. I don’t know how many people are alive today because of him. I know that he changed mine.
Please hug your children tonight. Never take them for granted. Call an old friend you haven’t spoken to in awhile and say hello.
Emmett and Kade were the same age. I found out about Kade after Emmett had left for Lizze’s parents to spend the night. Every single part of me wants to go pick him up and bring him home. I just want him close.
Everyone is sleeping and I’m alone with my thoughts… To much time to think….
Say a prayer tonight for the lives that were lost tonight. Keep these families in your thoughts as they go through this very difficult time….

Sending love from my home in NZ. Have my 4 year old sitting next to me and cant even begin to imagine the pain of losing a child.
Kia Kaha (be strong in Maori) to both families and friends who are dealing with their losses.
That is so heartbreaking. My thoughts, prayers and heart goes out to the families. Life is so precious and so short.
You are right, hold onto those dearest to you and cherish every moment you get.
