With deep sadness and wonderful memories I sit and write this… Another young Angel has gained his wings yesterday, March 6, 2016 This child we love to call Leon fought a battle with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) since 2012. Leon was 10 at time of dx and 13 when he gained his wings, many will know and remember him as the young childhood cancer fighter who is now set free, no more pain or discomfort most of all no more cancer but we would like to remember Leon as a child, someones son, brother, grandchild, nephew, and friend. Leon is a friend of Nathan’s, yes they met because they both fight/fought the same cancer but they became friends because of who they are and stayed friends because of their out going personalities, they understood each others silly jokes, shared the same interests and sadly they knew the other understood how their life has changed. There was no judgment, no stares, no insecurities between them but what there was…was silly kid behaviors, jokes, laughs, giggles(yes there’s a difference), goofing off, boys being boys, understanding, and most importantly friendships. Friends will come and go in ones lifetime and a great friend is hard to find, when you do find that friend no matter what or where life takes you, you never forget; the memories will always be with you and at times you may find those memories running through you, a moment when you just stop and think WOW Leon would have loved this, I’m sure Nathan will have those moments but for now Nathan along with those who love and know him will grieve for the loss and struggle inside to find that inner peace.
The boys shared many great moments…These moments were shared as friends, as childhood cancer B+ Heros, Nathan’s Story CCO Warriors, and as teammates.
Our most sincere condolences to Leon’s family, we pray the Lord can be with them in this time of need and hold and guide them through these difficult days coming and those moments of overwhelming fear and ache…May God Bless his soul RIP Leon fly high and soar above the clouds…Goodnight <3
