It is with a saddened heart we report that Baby Otto has died.
Yesterday the family reported that something was wrong, “URGENT: they have discovered something wrong it Ottos intestines, and lots of blood in the stool. Taking him to st.louis childrens hospital for surgery! Pray for healing, dr. Wisdom, and safety as they all travel!”
But, sadly, his parents lovingly posted this message to his Pray for Otto Facebook page only hours ago,”Otto was a little to excited to meet Jesus so he went and joined him today at 4:45.”
Otto Wilhite was born 3 months early on December 16th, 2014 to parents Erin and Dave Wilhite. He weighed 1 lb. and 10oz. and was only 13 inches long.
Some of the last pictures of Otto show his loving parents spending time with him:
