The funeral was beautifully done... There was a huge turnout... Family, friends, friends of friends, the media... And even perfect strangers attended to pay their respects to the family.

We are still requesting prayer and taking donations for the family... Also, we love hearing from each of you on here: feel free to leave comments on the page.

We have a schedule of food deliveries set up: if you are interested in donating a dinner dish, please email me (michelle@sysctl.net) to be put on the schedule

Yesterday weighed so heavy on my heart... the wake was beautifully done...the flowers were beautiful, the streaming music, with the slide show of pictures from his birth until a few weeks ago...It was overwhelming...and the support from family, friends, and the community was wonderful.

Today we lay him to rest. In just a couple short hours, we will say goodbye to baby Hezekiah for good

A tragedy for anyone who knew Hezekiah. He was so full of life, and will be missed by us all. He is with the angels now, and our family is coping. He leaves behind two sisters who are elementary age themselves. We are asking for donations to help with the cost of memorial services. Any donation will be useful... the family recently lost another close loved one to a battle with cancer, and funeral expenses can be overwhelming.




Thank you for any donations, and prayers sent.

You are welcome...just want to help anyone going through this in any way possible...and sometimes that's just letting someone know that there are people who do know this pain and can understand all the turmoil it creates...

Tonight my heart is breaking for this family!! I hope I'm not out of line here since I don't know your family, but I have been in your shoes. If someone would have reached out to me during the chaos of my ordeal, I would have taken the hand offered....Seven years ago in October, my two year old son, Jacob, drowned. I don't have any money to offer, but I offer a shoulder to cry on, an ear to vent to, someone to scream at if you need to...just message my Facebook, and I will give you my cell...today you began the worst journey a parent can face, and should never have to!! Please realize that guilt is going to be a natural part of this process(maybe not yet, but it will rear its ugly head) as parents we always feel its our fault if something happens to our children....you did your best, you did not fail your child!!!!..I have always disliked the phrase 'its Gods plan or will' when it comes to losing a child, but looking back I have come to realize, sometimes there are things already mapped out beyond our control no matter how hard we try....so please, cherish and hold each other, don't let guilt eat at your soul, and when you feel like you won't live through the pain...someone once told me, go ahead, try to stop breathing, you can't....your body won't let you...so, we soldier on one breath at a time!! It's all we can do....especially when we have other children....with all my sympathy and love......Christy Dore

My heart breaks for anyone who was touched by Hezekiah. I am so very sorry for the loss of this most beautiful child. This isn't fair and it isn't okay. This will never be okay. Blessings, love, compassion and heart felt sympathy coming your way. I am so so so sorry this precious, curious, adorable little man has left his family.

So very sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this terrible time in your lives. I believe when someone dies so young it is because they were way too good for this world. He will always be smiling down on you. May you find peace and healing.
