My son Ismael 23 went with the Lord on April 23rd 2010 after battling for 17 yrs DMD, he died peacefully surrounded by his loving family.He is survived by his parents,brother,sister ,nephew Gabriel also affected with DMD and a big extended family. We feel the same way because my son always loved the Lord above everything else and in his humble quiet way was an example to others and a living testimony that with the Lord's help you can soar and managed to be happy regardless the situation. He also loved car shows, movies,football, he also played power soccer for the Tampa Thunder, and liked Playstation 3 and be in the computer all night. We also have a long road ahead of us with our grandson, it's tough but "God have a purpose in all this" like my son Ismael would say. I am grieving for me and my family because we miss him dearly but now it's time for us to be happy for him knowing that he is in a better place were he is no longer suffering.
God bless you
So sad reading about your wonderful son's passing George. We are strangers, although in DMD we are not, and my heart goes out to you and your family. Sending blessings to Michael who is now free and prayers for peace to you. Everyday I ask God not to take anyone else who suffers from this dreaded disease. Tomorrow I will pray harder.
