Our sweet Crew went to be with Jesus today. I rode on the bed with him to the O.R, with Jeff walking beside me as the surgical team pushed us through the halls. People lined the halls to pay their respects to our little hero and then we said the hardest goodbye of our lives. I’m not very good with words right now, because my heart hurts and I’m angry. Crew’s Story has reached masses, and it selfishly hurts me that it has. I’m thankful for all the love and support that we have been shown, but please keep in mind that we can see your comments, questions and conversations with one another. Put yourself in our shoes(which is impossible to do) and ask yourself If you’d want to read what you’re about to write or say. Right now Crew is dancing and playing in Heaven with Jeff’s brother, great grandparents, a little brother I never met, and some very special little boys. And one day we hope we to meet the 3 or 4 little lives that he has saved. But right now there’s a big hole in my heart and my arms feel empty. Please continue to pray for our strength in coming hours, days, weeks and years. This picture was sent to us, and to whomever drew it, thank you. 💙

Furthermore, Brittani’s husband, Jeff, also stated that there were people who commented insensitive things about his family, while he expressed his gratitude towards the ones who offered help.

The tragedy reportedly hit the young family when Brittani went to check on her napping baby and found out he was not breathing.

Later, the YouTuber shared a picture from the hospital, in which she was holding Crew’s little hand while he was on a ventilator.

On the next day, the heartbroken mother shared a post on social media that her son has passed away.

One commenter stated: “I’m so sorry you guys are having to walk this path, my friend. My heart breaks for you, Jeff and the family. I hope you feel the Lord’s presence through it all and know we will continue to lift you all up in prayer. So much love to you all ❤️.”

A second person added: “We love you, @brittaniborenleach. May angels surround you and comfort your heart now and forever. We will never forget Crew. 💙.”

Social media is still sending love and prayers to the grieving family. It is a change from the initial reaction from some trolls who had called the grief a “publicity stunt.”
