Sunday ( Monday New Zealand ) is his funeral.
Thats right. He is dead. He was killed in the Christchurch Earthquake. He is the youngest one. The Youngest victim to date.
Baxtor was born just 13 days after the quake that hit Christchurch on September 4.
You also read that right. Born 13 days after the original quake.
I have read a lot of very very sad stories but this one shattered me again.
He was FIVE MONTHS OLD.
No details on how he died but quite frankly I don't want to know that and some things should be left private for the family.
There is a facebook page set up in his name so people can leave messages of support for him and his family:
I don't have much else left to say. I look at my own son, who is ten and I can't imagine the hell those parents of that beautiful child are going through right now.
Res In Peace Baxtor. You brought such joy to your family in the short time you were here.Updated by GlowNZ at Fri Feb 25, 2011, 10:00:45 PM
