The mother of a terminally ill 2-year-old Pennsylvania boy who served as his parents' best man at their wedding last weekend confirms that he has died.

Christine Swidorsky Stevenson says on her Facebook page that little Logan Stevenson passed away in her arms at 8:18 p.m. Monday at their house.

Christine and Sean Stevenson in Jeannette, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, and were married at their home with Logan as best man in the ceremony.

A family spokeswoman, Sylvia Johnson, confirmed the boy's death to the AP.

His mother says on Facebook, "He is with angels and he's in no more pain."

She posted that her son was doing poorly. His breathing was rapid, then slowed. After an exam, the mother was informed that he did not have much time.

"Sean (his father) and I held him all day he was comfortable with his medication then at 8:18 my son took his last breath in my arms," her post said.

Young Logan stood with his grandmother, Debbie Stevenson, during a 12-minute wedding ceremony that united Logan's mother and his father.

After a whirlwind week, the Jeannette couple tied the knot in a hastily arranged backyard ceremony that formalized their union and celebrated Logan's life.

The Stevensons abandoned an original wedding date of July 2014 after learning from doctors late last month that their son had 2-3 weeks to live.

The couple wanted Logan to see them marry and to be in family photos. If nothing else, they will have that memory of him to cherish with them forever.

Logan, who was born October 22, 2010, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. He has Fanconi anemia, a rare disease that often leads to cancer.
