Tim and Amber Shoemake had just returned to their Pike County home to retrieve burial clothes for their son Leland when they say they found a note, written in red marker, on the living room table. “We have no idea when he wrote it but you can tell he was always a special child,” his mother wrote while sharing a photo of the note on Facebook Monday. Thank you mom and dad.” Amber and Tim Shoemake, Leland’s parents, shared the note with Leland’s supporters on the Facebook page “Prayers for Leland.” They found it after returning home to pick out clothes for his funeral. “We were in shock and broke down as soon as we saw it,” Amber told ABC News. “He was amazing in life and still is after his passing.

He touched everyone he met and we are amazed at how many lives he’s touched since he left us.” Leland was in first grade at Pike County Primary School and had been sick for nearly a month. I never imagined that would be the thing that would take him from me,” Amber wrote in a Facebook post. “He was my world.” She added that Leland enjoyed watching History (the TV channel), was an Adam Sandler fan and loved facts pertaining to WWII.
