Rest in Peace Ethan Powell

Awhile back I had posted about this little man. Diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of two months, he fought and fought. Ethan lost his battle, this morning and went to be with the Lord.

I am so distraught right now. I feel like I know this family and this little boy. I've read their blog everyday, and I've had Ethan on my prayer list for months.

I feel so blessed that the Lord has given me healthy children, thus far. I pray that the Powell family doesn't lose hope, that they cling to their Lord, and that they still keep BELIEVING that prayer DOES WORK!

R.I.P Ethan. Enjoy your new home, without pain and without illness. I can't wait to meet you someday. :)

Oh.. it just breaks my heart. Thanks for letting us know. I've been following him on and off for a little while, and I was so sad to see he died.

I hope he's happy and running around playing where he is at. My warm thoughts to his poor family, he has women who loved him all over the country.

He looks so beautiful and healthy and cheeky in that clip. Such a devastating thing for his family to live through. Praise God for the time they did have with him and that he is safe now with his Heavenly Father.

I can't imagine that... I'm not even a parent. It's so hard to understand why children die.

At least his pain is gone now and he is with God.

Oh my...that poor family. I can't imagine the heartbreak they are going through right now.

My friend Lisa posted about this too and I know her from church so it was weird that you both had something about him on your blog.

I just watched that video and now I am a puddle. It just breaks my heart because that could be any one of us with our child.

What a beautiful child of God he is...

Oh man.... I am sitting here crying for Ethan's parents. They look so young. Praise God for their faith.... It would be so much more difficult to make it through Ethan's death without it.

News like that just makes me sick for that poor baby's parents. Thank goodness for their faith. What a darling baby he was - like you, I just can't help but feel so grateful for my three healthy little boys.
