  4. We've never met "officially." I never knew of Wyatt personally until my friend Ali shared this page. But as I scrolled back, I saw you mention the Helping Our Kids radiothon and my antennae went up. That's a duPont thing. I bet we've passed each other in the hall and not realized it - we've probably moved out of each other's way in an elevator. Words can't describe the kick in the gut I felt -- we don't know each other personally, but we are duPont family. "I'm so sorry, you're in our prayers" is just so inadequate.

  6. I am just so sorry. I've been following your story here quietly. Your letter yesterday was beautiful. As Meg said, there are no words that could be adequate right now. Wyatt will be remembered by more people than you know because you took the time to share your journey here. Thank you for sharing him with us. I will continue to pray for you and your family during this time. I am just so sorry.

  10. I came across your blog last year by accident. I have been reading ever since. His memory will live on, including over the pond here in England. Thinking of you all so much. You continue to be in my prayers. x

  13. How does joy compare to the deep pain of grief?
    Joy only goes so far.

    *****

    The people who influence us the most are not those who detain us with their continual talk, but those who live their lives like the stars in the sky and the lilies of the field - simply and unaffectedly. These are the lives that mold and shape us. {Oswald Chambers}

    *****

    Before that, I had never realized the deep and almost unearthly significance of a sorrow too deep for tears. {Dabney}

    *****

    What fills my heart now:
    knowing that the end
    of Wyatt's suffering is
    far from the end of
    yours.

    Tears for you, as you miss your Super Wy more than words can tell,

    with love for all of you,

    Cathy in Missouri

  14. I found your blog through Will Martin's blog (who is our family friend and struggles with this awful disease also). I have been silently following along and rooting for SuperWy and your family. Words cannot express how inspiring your family is and how you have impacting my own view of motherhood. You made Wyatt's life rich despite all the obstacles. Sending you all wishes of peace through this awful journey. Wyatt will never be forgotten. Thank you for being so brave and for sharing his story with us. There are many strangers rooting for you and sending wishes for peace in your mind and heart.
    Sincerely,
    Beth Williams in Houston

  15. "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened".... I love that. I have a memorial tattoo with this quote for my son Daniel, who passed in February 2012.
    I painted Wyatt's Peach's Neet Feet for him almost a year ago on October 20th. I thoroughly enjoyed painting his Disney World themed shoes, I thought I would never be able to fit the Epcot Center on them. I remember the pictures of when he saw his shoes. His sisters helping him open the box and showing him his art. He was a loved son and brother.

    Stay Brave!!

  17. Ashley, I'm at a loss for words. Just know that my thoughts are with you and your family. We were there together online on AOL when Wyatt was born, and I've been reading faithfully these past few months once I found your blog after several of us reconnected on Facebook. I can't even imagine how you are feeling right now.
