Funeral Ceremony For Deyton

Deyton left this world weighing 8lbs and 11ounces which is 5 ounces more than what he was born with. It was his heart that grew because of how many people he had to touch. He fought his way back and forth from leaving this earth because he wanted to make sure some family members were there in his passing. We know how strong Deyton is and how strong his parents truly are.

We would ask you to come celebrate his short life with us and honor his presence. We have never experienced anything so happy and so sad at the same time. We know he is in a better place and that his spirit will be forever felt in all of us. Derek and Krystal would still like to Thank Everyone for their continuing support and would be privileged with your attendance.

We would like to thank McMillan Mortuary for their services. Also we would like to mention that donations have been set up in a few ways. Sunfirst Bank has an account set up under Krystal Sorensen in trust for Deyton Sorensen.

My son has hypoplastic left heart syndrome. I have thought of your family non-stop since my mom called me this past Saturday and told me your story. I love you so much, yet have never met you. Please know that your family is in our prayers. I so wish I could have been there for Deyton's funeral.

This is Taelor Lewis (your nighbor from cedar park townhomes). I heard your story yesterday and havn't been able to get it off my mind since. Its brought tears to my eyes and tugs at my heart. What a handsome little guy, and what an incedible spirit he must have. You are certainly in our prayers.

Hi! My name is Melissa and I found your blog through a friend. I am so sorry for your loss, and for the terrible pain that you are suffering at this time. It hurts, so bad. I have a daughter named Elaine that was born with Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrom. She passed away just before her third birthday. I belong to a wonderful support group called Intermountain Healing Hearts. It is for families, like us, whose lives deal with CHD's. There is also a part of the group called Intermountain Healing Hearts Angels, for those whose loved one has passed on. It is so relieving to have a safe place to vent and discuss feelings. A place where people "know". We have a website (www.intermountainhealinghearts.org) if you are interested. Your Deyton is a beautiful boy. There are no words to be of comfort.
Thinking about you at this time!

We have been thinking about you guys and praying for you. I can imagine how difficult the past week has been for you, and it was such a bitter sweet moment watching you leave the hospital. (We were just 2 doors down in the picu) I continue to pray that you will feel the peace that comes from Heavenly Father, it's the thing that's gotten me through the past 2 weeks.

Rance said...

I love you guys! It was wonderful to be a part of this amazing experience.

Loves,

Rance

Krystal-
I don't know if you remember me, but we were in the same biology class at Dixie in St. George (I met you through Kim Banks) and we were both doing dental hygiene. I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. It broke my heart when I heard about it. Being a mom myself, I can only imagine the loss you must feel. I will keep you and your little guy in my prayers. Just remember families are forever!

I am so sorry to hear the news about your baby boy. My son was born with HLHS 7 years ago. We are fortunate enough to still have him with us today. I never know what to say or how to tell people that I meet that are in your same situation, so I hope I don't offend you in anyway. I am not sure why some of these kids make it and some don't...it is still a major wonder and concern in my mind. Anyway, my heart goes out to you and your family and all those close to you because I know how many people this really has an effect on. If you would like to contact me I would love to show you pictures and tell you more of what we have gone through over the last 7 years. My email address is k_hall23@hotmail.com. I hope to hear from you and again I am so sorry for your loss! Kathryn Hall
