My little angel Cooper


I am not sure if you heard, but we lost our sweet little man on Wednesday night. He put up such a good fight.  I have learned so much from him. It was an amazing six and half weeks with him. He really brought out the best in people.  Although I want him here with me, I am glad to now that his suffering has ended and he is smiling down on me.  He will be in my heart forever.  

I held in my arms until his little heart stopped beating, he looked at me the whole time.  I love him so much and he will be forever missed.

Thank you all for your support.

I am so sorry for your loss.  Words really cannot express that emotion enough.  I recognize that there are few words that I can say to give you comfort.  I read your story, and I see that in his short life, Cooper was loved and wanted and he knew that.

It's so hard to know what to say to comfort you.  This is a time when a person really is at a loss for words.  Your news has spread across the Forums and all of us are so deeply saddened for you and your husband.

We lift little Cooper's spirit up to God and trust him to touch your lives in a way, that you know that Cooper's life was not in vain.  As you say, he taught you so much in his short time on this Earth.  That's really what is important.  Isn't it?

You and your family will continue to be in our prayers for a long time to come.  I know it is the wish of everyone that has been touched by your trauma would like to reach out to you and hold you.  To comfort you, to have you know that you are not alone in your grief.  To share with you....

May the peace and comfort of the Lord touch your hearts in months and years to come.  Little handsome Cooper will never be forgotten.  One tough little man.

God Bless you and keep you, until you again meet with your little Cooper.

Much Love and Giant Hugs,

Words cannot express what you are going through. All I can say is I am so sorry for your loss and you are in my thoughts and prayers.
God bless you.

As it has been said many times, and many times to come, there truly are no words to let you know how much your family and Copper mean to many people. So many have followed your journey into pregnancy and Cooper's journey and fight after his birth. He was so much more than a fighter! He was a handsome little man who was loved by so many and your family made sure he knew that. He will be forever missed, always in our hearts and never forgotten. He now sits at the right hand of God where he can watch over you until you are one day reunited. On behalf of my entire family, our prayers are with you and yours.

Big Hugs!

Thank you for sharing Cooper with all of us.  I loved seeing the pictures of your baby. I wish there was a way to take away your pain but that's not possible.

My heart is aching for you.  I don't know how someone moves on from something like this.  He was beautiful.  I am praying for you and your family.  I hope you can find some kind of comfort or peace in knowing that he no longer suffers.
God bless you.

I cry for you and your family because I know this is the hardest thing in the world.  You held him in your arms and were given the opportunity to let him feel your love.  He felt your love and he knew his mama... I am so glad that you were able to hold your baby boy and look into his eyes and I know you will hold that in your heart forever..  There are no words that can ease the pain but I pray that God will blanket you in his love and healing...  You are Cooper's mommy and you always will be... We love you both and support you

I wanted to say (as many have already said..) I can't express in words how truly sorry I am for you and your family. You are in my thoughts.

I have been reading about your little angel Cooper. You are enduring what I believe is the hardest and worst thing that any person can experience. You are a wonderful, strong person and Cooper was so blessed to have a family like yours. May God bless you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss, as I write this I am filled with tears and my heart just breaks for you and your family! I can not imagine your pain... though as a mother it tears me up to even begin to try and imagine.. May the lord bless you with tremendous strength during this time in your life, and know that you will one day see him again.
God Bless You

I did not know of Cooper until he passed, and went to his caring page and read every update. I was crying by the time I got to the end. He was such a fighter, and I pray that your heart heals from such a deep loss. I am so sorry.

...my heart is breaking.  I can't even find the words to say anything except that I am sooooo sorry...
You are in my thoughts,

Thank you everyone for all your love and support.  I will need many prayers to get through the next couples of days. We must lay our little man to rest on Monday.  I am trying so hard to be strong like Cooper, but I am failing miserably.  I know my little angel will help us through this.

If you would like to read about Cooper's short time here on Earth, you can visit his carepage. Just go to carepages.com and click on visit. The name of Cooper's link is care4cooper. There you can read daily updates from the very minute he was born until his last message written from heaven. There is also a photo gallery and place to leave messages. This page has given us more support then I could have ever imagined.  

Thanks again for everything.

I am so sad right now. I went to Coopers page and could only read a couple. I was crying so hard, I could imagine it being my Blake, it almost felt like it was. Your loss is more than anyone should have to endure. I'm glad you got the time you did with him, my heart aches terribly for you...

I read your post and your story on carepages.com and I just wanted to say how very sorry I am for your loss.  You sound like an amazing woman and Cooper, an amazing little boy!  I will say extra prayers for you and your family!

God Bless You!
