My son, Ethan Armand Millis, brought me and so many others so much joy.

To me, Ethan was an Angel. He was so pleasant and most always happy. He wanted everyone around him to be happy also. He loved everyone and really believed everyone loved him. He never met a stranger; he could carry on a conversation with anyone. He loved to read, sing and make people happy.

Ethan was always doing something, never a dull moment for him, which is why it was such a shock when he had a sudden, severe headache. He rarely ever had headaches. This one was different. At the emergency room the doctors found a brain tumor and there was bleeding on the brain. It was malignant and inoperable.

Ethan passed away on September 24, 2008. During his stay at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – Egleston, everyone was so helpful. The Brain Tumor Foundation for Children was so supportive in helping me and my family in trying to understand this.

I miss him so much. He would have turned 5 on December 1, 2008. Birthdays, holidays and September 24th are difficult days. But the memories of Ethan are so precious and they will always be with me. He will never be forgotten.
