Photos: Dying boy leaves his parents touching goodbye note

Six-year-old Leland passed away last week in Georgia from an amoebic brain infection. Before he died, he left a note for his parents which read: "Still with you. Thank you Mom and Dad."

His grieving mother, Amber Shoemake found the goodbye note when she returned home for the first time since her boy died in order to fetch clothes for his burial ceremony.

She found the note left on the living room table. The heartbroken mother was quoted by ABC7 as saying:
"We had no idea when he wrote it but you can tell he was always a special child," Amber said. "We will love you forever Leland. Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite!"
Amber paid tribute to her son which was posted on Prayers for Leland Facebook page where she shared her son's love of history, Adam Sandler, and his academic strengths as a student.
