Too soon

(Editor’s note: To many of you following the story of Pyro, the kid who had the strongest will of heart we’ve ever seen – this update will certainly put a tear in your eye.)

“His spirit was willing, but his flesh was already weakened so much, his spirit has to give way. He fought to the very end, hearkening to his father’s please to hold on and fight… till his father realized that he was suffering more by holding on. And let it not be said that parents who can tell their dying child to let go are not brave. Because it takes courage to hold your child’s hand and tell him to find peace… and not at your side.”

“Pyro joined his Maker at 10:45 AM. His tumor grew so big it pushed his heart too far to the left, compromising his lungs, and leading his heart to give up. My family, friends and I would like to thank everyone who accompanied us on this journey. Thank you for your kindness, your grace, your love.”

    I followed Pyro’s story from his blog and this truly saddens me even though I don’t know the family personally. I’m glad that his sufferings are over and I pray that the family find peace in this sad SAD time.

    I too read Pyro’s site. I am thankful for blogs and the internet where at least they gave us the opportunity to know a little bit about this brave boy we would never have known existed.

    This is the first I’ve known about Pyro’s story. I think I read the whole ‘In Times of Pain’ site after reading this post in thepinoy.net. I too don’t know the family but this story truly is heartbreaking. Take a rest now Pyro, the pain is over. :-(

    Lady Li was the child of a border guard in Ai. When first captured by the state of Jin, she wept so much her clothes were soaked. But after she entered the palace, shared the king’s bed, and dined on the finest meats, she regretted her tears. How do I know that the dead do not regret their previous longing for life? One who dreams of drinking wine may in the morning weep; one who dreams weeping may in the morning go out to hunt.

    CHUANG TZU
