Christian had been sick all of his life but he was a true fighter, a true little soldier and a hero to some. He may not been able to tell, but you could see the love in his big blue eyes.
The Vernon family would like to give a special thank you to the nurses from Bayada Home Health, Northwest Volunteer Fire Department, the paramedics and EMTs and the nurses and staff at Brenner Children's Hospital who have been a part of Christian's life from the very beginning. May God bless each and every one of you.
