This is a very sad post today , as everyone knows in my home town St.Helens, a little boy has sadly lost his life battling Leukemia.
Little Isaac and his bravery has touched the lives of many of us from this town and so Last night (Thursday) , it was arranged that as many people from the town would at 8.30 simultaneously would release balloons and lanterns in memory of Isaac and to show our support.
Myself and my friends climbed upto billinge hill where there were already a large group of people, it was so emotional when at 8.30 we could see into the distance thousands of balloons and lanterns light up the sky of St.helens.
I cannot even begin to imagine what Isaacs mum and dad are going through, it is heartbreaking but i hope they can take some comfort in knowing theirs and Isaacs courage has moved so many of us and the compassion and empathy shown throughout our town has been incredible. Although the evening was so sad it was also a beautiful thing to see how many people of our town are here to support each other at such difficult times as this.
Something positive has happened from his tragic event, i know so many people along with myself who want to donate for bone marrow, and i urge everyone to do this.
I know there is a just giving page to help isaacs family give Isaac the best send off possible which i will post the link here when i find it.
I have compiled some photographs i have taken last night, they are not the best and it is hard to make out all the lanterns and balloons in the far distance but i hope it conveys the emotion and love everyone has shown for Isaac and his family.
To Isaacs Family ..
There are no words anyone can ever say that will take your hurt away, so i won't try to , but what i will say is ( and i take comfort in this ) i do believe that when you lose someone close to you , you dont ever really lose them, for now that they are simply living somewhere else, they are always with you in your mind with your memories and in your heart with your love,
Sending you all my love, your in my thoughts and prayers ...x
Goodnight God Bless Beautiful Boy xx
Love Louise xx
