Seeing this immediately brought tears to my eyes. As a father of a son not much younger than Chad, I can't possibly even fathom what his family must be going through. Thoughts and prayers for all involved.

The first time my wife and I went to the hospital to deliver a baby, we came home empty handed.  It hurt like hell and still does.   I'm sure they'll remember every second they had with him.

My youngest (1) was sick and throwing up all weekend.  At around 4am on Sunday, my wife and I were cleaning up another round of bed sheets for the washing machine and she mentioned how much it sucked and how she was tired.  I was tired too.   I sat there on the bedroom floor for a minute and thought about this story again, and how some parents would give anything to only have our "problem".  

RIP Kiddo.

I have 2 children who have been following Chad's story. Today is my oldest's 6th birthday. I just don't have the heart to tell her about Chad today. We will always remember the bravery and honesty that Chad and the Carr family displayed.

Me too.  Full on tears rolling down my cheeks.  And seeing the picture of Jason holding his son makes it even more “real” to me. 
I have three boys 10 and younger, and this story just kills me every time I think of it.  The thought of losing one of them and having to go through this ordeal is probably more than I'm capable to dealing with.  
The thoughts and prayers of me and my family are with Tammi, Jason, the Carr family, and especially Chad.

We had the same experience as you guys did. You never expect to leave the hospital without your child; let alone have to bury them.

My thoughts are with all the others who also have lost a child and special prayers tonight for the Carr family.

Thoughts and prayers to the family.

Was happy to see that he got one final Christmas with his family a few weeks ago. In the end it's the memories you make that keep people in our hearts

I'm not too proud to say it.  I'm hurting inside right now and it shows on the outside.  All my families prayers are with the entire Carr family today.  

I hope this young man has a seat next to Bo and my dad, a 1947 graduate of the University of Michigan, to watch the game on Saturday and bring home a win for the Wolverines and they sing The Victors together.

Doesn't matter if they knew this was coming, it still hurts as bad as it could. I never had the blessing of meeting Chad or his incredibly tough family, but I can only say I wish them strength through this. Hopefully they can find it knowing that tough little man fought this horrible disease with all his might, and that now he can finally be at peace. RIP Chad, your life was too short on this earth, but your memory will be forever in the hearts of those who knew you.
