Sadly yesterday, 20th November 2012, little Caden Beggan from Cleland in Scotland, lost his difficult battle against meningococcal septicaemia which he had fought bravely for four weeks. He died in the arms of his parents in Yorkhill Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow, which had looked after him so well.
His father said on Facebook: “Dear friends, Caden Riley Beggan. Born 29th September, 2006. Died 20th November, 2012…in Mummy and Daddy's arms. Thank you for all your support. Caden is alive forevermore.”
This little man now occupies a special place in my heart and in the heart of thousands of others.
May He Rest In Peace.

"Some of you have also been asking about sending cards and flowers to David and Angela. Please feel free to send cards to the family home.
However we ask that, instead of sending flowers, people consider sending donations to Yorkhill Children's Hospital, if they prefer."
