Wyatt's Legacy

Many of you have been on this journey with Loni, Brian and Wyatt for months now.  If you haven't, please read Wyatt's story here:  https://www.gofundme.com/her42sak
Through all the ups and downs, I never thought we'd end up here.  Unfortunately it is not always up to us.  After months of surgeries, and prayers, Wyatt finaly made his way into this world on February 19th.  This little warrior and his devoted mother fought together to get him to 34 weeks, so that he could be born with the best chance possible.  Wyatt was in a bit of a rush, and didn't want wait until he was full term.  He was so brave, and so feisty, he fought to stay here until the very end.  The doctors and his parents did everything they could, but Wyatt's little heart just got too tired.  Wyatt passed away this morning, 4/14/16.  In his short time, Wyatt gave so much love, and so much joy to those around him.  He was such a blessing to all of us.  He brought us all together, friends, family and strangers alike.  Through Go Fund Me, he was able to be a part of so many lives.  

Wyatt was as blessed to have Brian and Loni, and they were to have him.  Even though they are heartbroken.  Loni is donating her milk to help another baby in need.
One of the last times I saw Wyatt, I saw the way he looked at his mother.  He would struggle to stay awake, just to watch her.  Any way she moved, his eyes would follow, he couldn't take his eyes off of her.  He fought for Loni and Brian, and now it is our turn to take over where Wyatt left off.  Warriors for Wyatt, help make this time just a little bit easier.  Please help cover the costs of putting Wyatt to rest.  I know that everyone has been so generous already, and we are all so thankful.  Let's just give them one less thing to think about.  Please make a donation.  If we are as generous as we all were before, I know that Loni and Brian would have money left over, which they could then donate to a charity of their choice in Wyatt's name.  Help Wyatt the Warrior leave a legacy that can do for others what you did for him.
