Alfie’s mother Kate has posted a poem remembering Alfie on Facebook:
Mummy please don’t cry now. For I must go to sleep. I’ll be beside you always. To dry the tears you weep. Daddy please be strong now. It’s time for me to rest. The three of us together dad. We fought, we done our best. You took my fight to everyone. The courts, the queen, the pope. While still caring for your baby. You never give up hope. And now the pain bears heavy. As the time has come to part. Though you no longer hold me in your arms. I’ll live on in your heart. For the good Lord he has called me. To sit there by his side. Watching over both of you. With never ending pride. A last message to my army. Please hold your loved ones tight. For no one’s time is promised. Now I must say goodnight.
When Alfie passed away, Kate wrote on Facebook: “Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am. We are heart broken. Thank you everyone for all your support.”
“My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30 absolutely heartbroken,” Tom Evans wrote on Facebook.
After his death, the family gathered at a park near Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to release balloons to honor the little boy.
“I am deeply moved by the death of little Alfie. Today I pray especially for his parents, as God the Father receives him in his tender embrace,” Pope Francis tweeted on Saturday.
Pope Francis repeatedly spoke on Alfie’s behalf and urged that Alfie’s parents be allowed to bring him to Italy; and even prompted a medical helicopter to be sent to take him to Italy for treatment.
A British doctors group, The Medical Ethics Alliance, expressed its dismay over the treatment of Alfie Evans and it called a “medical tyranny.”
