I'm so sorry to hear about your son. My heart goes out to your family. I hope & pray that your family will feel the love of the Savior during this difficult time. I also have a 10 year old and my heart aches for your loss. May each one in your family feel comfort and peace in the days to come. Lots of love to you all!

By the way, I grew up in the Orange Stake and knew Ryan's family. My maiden name was Stephanie Stoddart.

Ryan, I am so sorry to hear about your son. My family will be praying for yours. It's been a long time and you and I didn't really know each other well, but I have a 10 year old son and I can't even begin to imagine life without him as crazy as he is sometimes. I know nothing anyone can say will make it feel better, I am so sorry.

You don't know me but I just wanted you to know that I am truly touched by your blog and am praying for your family. Your sweet memories of Valentines day brought tears to my eyes. Those are the kind of precious moments that you can forever cherish. God bless your family.

I do not know you, but I stumbled across your blog a few years ago, and have checked back from time to time to see what your beautiful family was up to. It always brought a smile to my face to read about the fun things you did for/with your kids!

My heart hurts to see this latest post, and I have thought of little else these past few days. I am praying that you are able to take comfort in your wonderful memories with Max. Please remember that because of you, he was able to live his short life to the fullest, and experience more in his 10 years than many people do in their lifetime.

Leanne and Ryan. The Stephen and Maureen Olsen family send so much love to you at this time. Max looks like a young Kenny Hauritz and I almost thought for a second it was a picture of Kenny at that age. Love to you and yours always.

jbel said...

We met you and your kids 1 year ago at Legoland with Megan O. Harris and her kids.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
May love and peace surround you now.

I went to high school with Ryan and, even though I haven't talked to him since the 10 year reunion and I never had the privilege of meeting Max, I am deeply saddened by your loss. My heart is broken for you.

I happened upon this blog and I read the whole thing in one sitting. Crying at times but smiling, too.

Leanne, you inspire me to be a better mother. You and Ryan gave that boy an amazing life as I'm sure he did the same for the both of you.

I am praying for all of you.

You do not know me, but we do share some mutual friends(derek waldron and christina hales). My heart has been so heavy. You have been in my thoughts and prayers daily. May the comfort of our Heavenly Father help you through this hard time in your lives.

Sage said...

I am in Ann and Randy's ward. They are wonderful people. I feel so sad for your loss. I have been praying for your comfort at this beyond difficult time.

God bless your family.

Dear Harris Family,
I have a very small idea of the depth of your feelings at this time because of my own family loss. Since I do not actually cook I wish to offer you what I can do to help. I can be available at times when you feel anxious. I am proficient at Healing Touch relaxation therapy. It can help by getting one in a healing mode. When I treat people at my hospital they have relief of pain and are able to relax and sleep better.
You have yet to find what your reactions will be and what problems will come up for each of you going forward.
I offer my services at any time. I often make house calls and also have a studio in my home.

Hey Leanne,
I don't know if you remember me but I was Max's primary president for a while before you guys moved out of O1. I found out about Max from Jody Roberts and I want you to know your family has been in our prayers ever since. I have shed so many tears for Max and your loss because he was truly the most amazing boy I've ever met. In all honesty when I first met him I told myself I was going to raise my kids to be just like him. He was beautiful inside and out and I truly ache for your loss. You will continue to be in our prayers.
Love, Jennifer Carlson

Happenstance said...

You don't know me, but I noticed the messages for Max on the South O Elementary gates on Cassidy as I drove by. I was moved to find out who Max was and now I know why. He was, as I read here, an amazing kid. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. May you be filled with strength and peace of mind at this time as you try to keep on. God bless you and your family.

You don't know me at all. I don't know you. I saw on the video "Use Somebody - Kings of Leon" on youtube that this boy had died. Someone had expressed very sad feelings and left his name.

I looked it up. I'm deeply sorry if you think this unnecessary. However, I've dealt with loss as well. My father passed away almost 2 years ago. I was 14 at the time of his death. 2 weeks before my birthday.

People say they know what you are going through, but it is different for everybody. However, I am glad to see that he (your son, that is) was a very happy child and you guys loved him very much. My father and I loved each other very much, and I'm glad to see that someone loves their children (my mom and I fight a lot.)

Anyways, I know this comment may seem weird, but I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in facing the world while saddened. The road will be hard, but maybe, we can all strive to make it a better place.

Again, I'm sorry for what happened. And you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Harris family
What a wonder show of faith and love for Max and family. Sadly we were on vacation and unable to attend the service. My daughter was in Mrs. Altars class with Max when we told her I could she her heart sink with sadness. Her first words were " I really liked Max". We gave these words to her "God takes those who have finished what they are ment to do here and Max is in a glories place. We prayed for you and your family often... My daughter is blessed to have been with max in Mrs.Alters class.

Dear Harris family,I was a 4th grade classmate of Max and today,all of a sudden, Max popped into my head. A scene from school came into my head, and i remember his broad smile as he was presenting his project and was saying" Sorry ladies and gentlemen, we are having some technical difficulties." Only that scene in particular. He also cheered me up one day when i was crying at school. I am still grateful 5 years later. Your son was amazing.
