We'll be sending some love and energy up your way from the women's Candlemas ritual that night, also.

It is not disturbing at all. It's a tribute to this little angel's life and the affect he had on so many others' lives and his last day needs to be remembered. It's also something that is absolutely necessary for you and Dad to grieve, mourn, and begin healing.

Know always that we love you and that you are never alone.

How I wish I could be there to pay tribute to Drayke, a little guy who made such a huge impact on me. Although I can't be there in person, I can promise that I will be there in spirit.

Sending buckets of healing wishes and hugs to your family. Please know that we are thinking of you.

Erin, Thad and Matt

Who cares if some find it disturbing. This is you last moments with Drayke and you want to remember every moment with him. He is now watching over us and all the other little babies in the NICU.

We have been following your family's experiences from Daxton's blog and wanted to let you know we will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

In my opinion, you should post anything and everything YOU feel the need to post. If someone does not 'approve' of what they find in a post, they can stop reading it!
