    What on Earth is going on? My heart is just breaking over this!!! My oldest D son is 14 and he was dx'd in '99. You think you've reached a safe point! I'm in tears over this. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

    God bless,
    Amy-mom to Riley-14, dx'd TI 7-1-99, pumping 5-2000; Lane-8, dx'd TI 1-8-10

    This is just awful. I had heard about Jesse a while back but read his mother's posting yesterday and it's so heartbreaking. Now I read this.

    This just shouldn't be happening. Our kids shouldn't have to deal with this damn disease. These poor families shouldn't have to be experiencing this pain.

    May the comfort of Love wrap this family like a warm blanket and offer peace to their broken hearts.

    Words just cannot describe how sad my heart is today.

    My son replied that dying in the middle of the night like this is the biggest fear of every Type 1 diabetic.

    I agreed and added it is the fear of every Type 1 diabetic's parent as well.

    I can't believe this is happening. Low blood sugar overnight being the cause. I will pray for this family. So young. Just horrible.

    I just dissolved into tears and feel sick. I can't imagine the heart ache to this family. It's my deepest fear. May God give them to the strength to walk down this road of grief.

    My son just did a report at school about his worst fear and this is it- My heart goes out to all families that lose a child.
