I just came from here and some how want to get it out ,  
This is so sad, we as parents are not suppose to bury our children, I know God has another reason, He needed them some where else, to do His work. So here is my thought, we as parents need to tell our children "I love you" "Thank you" Hug them no matter how old, let them know every day, When you hang  up the phone not good bye "I love you" ( You say why my kid know I love them) Have you told them lately? This could be any parents child (any age). " I love you" why You may never be able to say it tomorrow

My deepest sympathy so out to Anthony's family.  People loved Anthony.  He was a blessing on earth.  I guess Anthony had finally completed his journey here on earth. Anthony has touched hundreds of hearts on his way.  May Anthony's soul rest in peace.
