Pablo

As we sit in our room at CHLA waiting for the hospice nurse to meet us and guide us home, Pablo is catching a much needed nap.

Jo Ann and I are looking at pictures of him on my phone and smiling. The pic above is from 16 June. It was taken in the CHLA oncology clinic.

Now, THAT'S Pablo! Look at him!

Pablo's spirit has greatly brightened the universe. You can see it shining in all the wonderful photos of him. That brightness will never dim.

Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster's gone
He's on the run and your daddy's here

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago and have been in constant watch over it since. Know that your sweet boy is in my thoughts and prayers and has touched my life more than I ever thought possible with someone I have never met.

I rejoiced with your post earlier this week as it appeared the worst was yet behind your family and your precious one only to have it all turned upside down. I pray for the Lord's arms to envelop you and help guide and carry you through this road you now travel and know that Pablo will always be with you, he will send you signs that he is at peace once he has arrived with the Lord. My prayers are with you

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Rain down him
So let it be
So let it be
Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thundercloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Let it rain
Rain on him

I spent the last 3 hours reading Pablog and about the Pablove foundation. Then in trying to find the ha t-shirt I just read of Pablo's passing.

Though that makes my hear hurt for you, please know what an amazing amount of love and inspiration you all are. Jeff's Good Morning note, Grady's letter, Jo Ann's Pablo bath quotes, all so precious.

You have no idea how much you've touched all of us who read about Pablo. The BEST is the pic with his head thrown back in laughter--peace to Pablo and may you feel his love always.
