    Thank you for sharing your sons video, I really enjoyed enjoyed it. I am so very sorry for your loss. I can not imagine the pain of losing a child. I lost my sister October 1, 2011…and would love the opportunity to see her lookback video also. I am so happy that you accomplished what you set out to do and I thank you, because of your plea maybe some of us that have lost a loved one will be able to see their loved ones videos…maybe, maybe not..but you certainly got FB administrators lookin into doin something for families that have lost. God Bless you and your family and may he help you heal from this most tragic of losses.

    I read the original story where you requested facebook for your sons video! I’m glad they were able to give this incredible gift to you. I wish you and your family the best in this time of healing. Any son would be proud to have a dad like you sir.
