So Sad, he was such a cutie. Why does a parent have to kill their child just because they want to end their life?

I can't understand any parent killing their child PERIOD, but to watch his little face as life drained away? Full of horror that his Daddy was hurting him?
I've gone cold at the thought.

I hope his mother knows that her little boy will entertain the angels in heaven, just as he entertained her on earth, and the angels will adore him.

So very sad!! IMO the father wanted to hurt his wife in the worst possible way and he certainly did that.

Reading this makes my heart ache so badly. Her description of Eric is in many ways how I would describe my 2 year old. He loves to sing and make up songs about everything and is a joy to be around.....I just can't imagine his life being taken away from me so tragically. I feel for this woman in so many ways that are hard to express. So tragic.
