Message from Andrew and Beth
Andrew, myself, and our entire family want to thank everyone so much for their support during this horrific time in our lives. As most are aware, our beautiful and perfect little boy, Wesley, who was 11 months old, tragically died in his sleep on April 10th. The go fund me, the meal train sign up, the texts calls and emails are all so wonderful and bringing us an immense amount of comfort as we endure this unbearable tragedy. We aren’t in a place where we are ready to respond to everything, we are just trying to survive each day minute by minute, hour by hour. Wesley was our entire world and he was truly an unbelievable little boy and we are left holding the pieces of our broken lives trying to figure out how to start gluing them back together.
There will be a celebration of life for Wesley at a later date.
We know that our sweet baby is watching over us forever and take comfort knowing that he knew more love in 11 months than most do in a lifetime.
Thank you again for the outpouring of support and generosity. There is nothing that can be done to make this better, so all we ask is that everyone cherish every moment with your loved ones and hug your kids extra tight today, because this is something we will never get to do again. We can all honour Wesley and his kind spirit by loving one another and being here for each other.
– Andrew and Beth
