It's a very sad day knowing that God called one of his most precious angels home to heaven. I'm very sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for your family as I have since first hearing about Emilio. I cried many tears for this little boy and will always remember his plight. God bless the Gonzales family and be with them now more than ever.

When I first read of little Emilio's case, I was truly horrified. Doctors, playing God!

All things that happen here on Earth are God's Will. Either He causes them to happen, or He allows them to happen. Is this not so? To say otherwise is to say God is impotent, unable to control the universe He created!

Therefore, clearly it was God's Will that Emilio develop this horrific degenerative illness. We can only assume that He meant us to learn some lesson from this child's torturous, yet brief existence.

God decided it was time for the child to die. What did these atheistic doctors do? They put him on artificial life support! In defiance of God's Will!

The doctors, perhaps having prayed, came to their senses and decided to stop interfering with God's Plan. At this point, the mother began a public campaign of blasphemy and defiance of God, demanding that a child God has determined should die be artificially sustained!

God, of course, won out in the end. Perhaps that is the lesson He wished us to learn . . . He indeed is in control; no matter how we may fight against His Will, it will be done!
