This story is very sad and maybe when you read it you will shed some tears.
Leland Shoemake, a precious little kid, wanted his mother and father to get this lovely sweet note from him before he left this world.
This young kid died of his illness while having treatment for Balamuthia mandrillaris, a brain-eating amoeba.
When the parents returned home, they found a note that they would remember for the rest of their lives.
Tim went to the boy’s room where he liked to stay and draw. The mother was arranging the room and preparing for the funeral.
As soon as the man found the note, he ran to his wife with tears in his eyes. The note read:
“To say I was devastated would be an understatement…
For the most extended period, we cried together.”
The parents decided to take the note and put it in a frame and hang it in the living room. The boy had always been different from the others. His mother wrote on Facebook:
“By the time he was a year old, he knew his ABCs, numbers, colors, shapes, and 20 sight words.” We adored him because he was our little nerd. He enjoyed going to school and learning new things. He was a history buff who watched the history channel, the weather channel, documentaries, and anything related to the subject… He had a strong desire to learn.”
He was a special guy who talked to everyone. The mark he left is significant for his parents at this time.
Amber says: “We liked him because he was our little nerd.” He adored school and learning.”
“He was a history buff who watched the history channel, the weather channel, documentaries, and anything related to the subject.”
“He was fascinated by ships like the Titanic and historical events like WWII. He was flawless. Jaws was his favorite movie.”
“Steven Spielberg was his favorite director. Adam Sandler was his favorite actor.”
“He was devoted to his brother and his family.” He was the life of the party at every gathering. His grin is bright enough to light up a metropolis.”
“He was the smartest, kindest, and the most loving little guy that ever lived.”
We send our deepest condolences to the family. Our prayers are with you.
