    That's sad. Poor kid has no parents now. I think he's like 16?

    Will Reeves's only 13 according to the BBC. Such a shame to have to watch both parents die over a relatively prolonged period... I suppose that it's slightly better than suddenly in that you get to say goodbye but a horrific experience.

    So sad to hear this. I can only half imagine how I could possible feel if both my parents died when I was in my teenage years.

    Best of wishes to the young one.

    Dana will always be fondly remembered for her remarkable dedication to her husband during the years following his paralysis. She gave special meaning to the "for better or worse" part of marital vows.

    This is such sad news.... I really wondered a while back when she was publicly saying that she was "beating this thing" -- so I'm not surprised now that in fact it beat her. Very sad....

    Gosh, that family really has had more than its share of tough things.... I really feel for young Will; losing both his parents within a fairly short time period and during his own short lifetime having to deal with so many issues around his father's disability and then his mother's illness, with fame thrown in on top of all that.

    I can't say anything that hasn't already been said. Sad that both Chris and Dana died so early, and that they went through such tragedy together; sad that their kid is now without either parent. Makes your heart feel heavy just thinking about it. :(

    Yeah, I think anyone would be lucky to have a wife (or husband) so loyal......someone who really DID love Supes so much that she would never leave him.

    I feel most sorry for their son, though. His most prominent memories are of hardship, celebrity, tragedy, death and disease. :eek:

    Dana was an extraordinary woman and her son Will has experienced more profound sadness in his 13 years than most people do their entire lives. I caught the end of Access Hollywood yesterday ... the program allowed viewers to send messages to Will on their website and were quickly overwhelmed with postings, some of which were read during the broadcast.

    They expressed wonderful heartfelt sentiments from those who were moved by both his parents, and the dignity and grace displayed as they coped with life's hardship and adversity. Will can expect to have many caring people watching over him and guiding him through to adulthood.
