My sister took this photo of my wife and I saying goodnight to our boy after this evening's viewing.
I was so moved by everyone's genuine compassion - visitors from all over came to show their support and love. We were so grateful.
With all the visitors, my heart was especially tender for Mitchell's little friends and peers. I would get on my knee as often as possible and hug these littlekids trying to sort out this loss - which is undoubtedly confusing, sad and scary for them. I would tell them that everything was going to be okay and how much Mitchell appreciated them ... how much Natalie and I appreciated them.
Tonight was difficult and beautiful. There was a peace in my heart that was heavenly and assuring.
