Saying goodbye to baby Treyden

by Nikki Montgomery

I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child. The strength you must have to push through. There are no words anyone can say to make it feel better or to help. All we can say is that we're praying for strength for the Kurtzweil family. Treyden Kurtzweil, 1 year, passed away yesterday after a long battle with Leukemia.

A listener told me last week after our family lost its' youngest member that we experience pain so we can understand love. In the year that Treyden was alive he experienced so much love from his parents, family, friends, hospital staff, and thousands of strangers who followed his story on Facebook. His story touched so many lives and even though I never met him personally I am glad I got a chance to get to know him through his Saving Treyden page.

In honor of Treyden's passing this morning we played Carrie Underwood "See You Again". Hopefully, the family can take comfort in knowing they'll be reunited with their beautiful baby boy one day.
