My boy's name was Kade, but we called him King Kade. He was a special child made by God. And communicated with God's representatives on a regular basis. He couldn't talk, walk or play but you could catch him looking up in an intense conversation with the Almighty. He was then the happiest boy in the world.
He had known many nurses and the majority had fallen in love with him and | know his passing will make many very sad. If you are one of the many many nurses over the seventeen years. This funeral is also for you to tell Kade goodbye. He had one nurse that caught his eye and loved very much. Angie had been with him for many years and could always make him laugh.
He was my boss and when something didn’t go right he would let me know. | wish | could get called in on the carpet again.
If you ever doubt there is a GOD go hang around a child like Kade and watch them for a while, Children are a gift from the Lord:” Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven to such as these. Kade according to the world was only supposed to stay two years. God let him stay longer.
