Despite receiving therapy for Balamuthia mandrillaris, this little kid passed away on September 25 due to the effects of his disease. He was just six years old at the time of his passing.
When his parents arrived home without their son, they found a message waiting for them.
Tim was the one who discovered the message. It had been left in their living room in an area of the room where he loved to sketch and make art.
Time’s eyes welled up with tears the moment he laid sight on the message, and he rushed towards his wife, eager to show her the note he had discovered…
The message only states the following: “I am here with you still. Thank you to both of yours, mum and dad. Love mum and dad.” Amber said: “It would be an understatement to say that I completely lost it… We sobbed together for what seemed like an eternity.
They received regular handwritten letters and drawings from their little son, but since this particular one was so much more meaningful than any of the others, the parents chose to have it framed and displayed on the wall in the family room.
As a young kid, Leland was described by his mother on Facebook as being both intelligent and inquisitive.
About him, Amber wrote as follows: “Every single individual who came into touch with Leland noticed his charming and kind demeanor, and his parents even acquired new friends as a result of him.
Leland wasn’t only a smart young boy; he was also quite outgoing and loved conversing with his parents and other people.
He had a tremendous amount of affection for both his brother and his family. He was the center of attention at every event.
His grin was so bright it might illuminate a whole town. He was most compassionate, and most loving young guy that had ever existed.”
