It is with very heavy hearts and teary eyes that we let you know that our little boy Dane lost his fight with Zellweger syndrome on April 11th, 2010. He passed quietly and peacefully in his hospital room at Seattle Children's Hospital and we all had a chance to hold him and say goodbye. He is so very special and has taught us to care and to love more than we ever thought possible.
We held services with immediate family for Dane on April 17th, 2010 on Vashon Island. We found a very peaceful and tranquil cemetery on Vashon Island that makes us happy. Vashon Island is located across the water from our house so we can see where Dane rests at all times. Nothing can prepare a parent for this type of event and I must say that the support we have received from family and friends has been outstanding. It's amazing how much power a pair of beautiful blue eyes and a great smile can have on a person's soul and it is great to see how many people this little 19 month old's life has touched. We're so proud to have been the parents of little Dane Duncan Tolmie. He will forever be remembered and loved and will always hold a very special place in our hearts! WE'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU DANE!
