Funeral services for Walker

Walker Alan Joslin (Ellis) born December22 2017 live 3 short month at Helen Devos childrens hospital where at 10 days old he had open heart surgery to fix his heart. He was born with an extra chromosome which caused a lot of defects, his heart and lungs could not work together so it put a huge strain on his already weak heart. He had some ok days but more bad days. Then on March 21, 2018 his parents received a phone call that they needed to get to the hospital because his heart was getting to weak to pump the blood properly through his body and they did not expect Walker to be able to fight much longer. After long meetings with different doctors, all of them saying that his body was not strong enough for another heart surgery, which he absolutely needed to even try to survive with no promises that it would work. There was a decision that needed to be made, they decided that Walker had been put through enough pain and did not want him to have to go through another lengthy heart surgery, so they made the worse decision, that they will hopefully ever have to make, for their son. They decided to have the breathing tube removed and let the lord take their beautiful son to be with him knowing that Walker is in a better place and not in pain or suffering no longer. On March 24, 2018 at 3:45 pm Walker Alan Joslin (Ellis) passed away in the arms of his parents and surrounded by his family.
