What a beautiful baby…. My thoughts and prayers and deepest sympathy to Olivers loving parents and family. We have never met, but when i saw this beautiful child well, he just drew me in with his big beautiful eyes. I wish more could have been done and that you didn’t have to go through such an unimaginable heartache and loss. It doesn’t seem fair. I hope our dear heavenly father wraps his arms around you and comforts you. One day you will be together again, in Gods time. I will continue to pray for you and Oliver. Gods speed. Sleep well baby.

Condolence from Jessica Ebersole on July 25th, 2016 5:11 pm

We don’t know each other, but we wanted to offer our condolences. We are also parents of a baby born with a heart defect and became part of the family at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. It is a very tough road to travel, but always remember that God chose Oliver for a reason–to show us that life here on earth is precious and way too short. Oliver put up one heck of a fight, and will help bring awareness to this horrible disease that is becoming all too common. Oliver is safe in the arms of God, no longer suffering. No child deserves to suffer like that. God bless your family. You are surrounded by so much love and support.

The Ebersole Family
Michael, Jessica and baby Meredith

Sending prayers and love.
