A Mother’s Touching Good Bye To Her Son #BraxtonStrong

Braxton Fuqua

“I lost my amazingly perfect earthly angel last night. I hugged, kissed, and laid next to him until they had to take him from me. I am beyond heartbroken and feel so lost right now. Braxton, was my sidekick, my best friend, my baby, my partner in crime, my mini-me.

“My world revolved around him. The past year and a half, me and him became closer than we ever were before the horrible journey he had to endure. I am so thankful he isn’t hurting and suffering any longer and is now in heaven playing baseball I’m sure. I am thankful God made me his mother. He was the best son any mother could’ve ever asked for. He is happy and cancer free now. He is my heavenly angel now. I miss him so terribly much already and don’t know how I’m going to handle this.

floral square“I ask everyone to please be respectful and let’s celebrate the amazing child my son was. He wouldn’t want a bunch of sadness. I am going to give him the best I can possibly do and make this weekend how I think he would want it.

We will have a private funeral, not open to the public. I want the funeral to be more personal and private so please do not show up, unless personally invited.

“Thank you all for loving my son. Thank you all for helping and supporting me and Braxton through everything this last year and half. #BraxtonStrong #MySonMyHero”
