Odin Paul Pond, 6 months old, passed away peacefully in the loving arms of his parents surrounded by family at Boston Children’s Hospital on 2-22-22 after a fierce battle with congenital heart disease and other morbidities caused by a genetic condition called Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. While spending time with his family, Odin enjoyed Christmas music, his kitties, and watching “Max and Ruby”. Odin touched many hearts all over the world with his journey and daily TikTok with his Mom Madeline. He and his family have taught all of us to be courageous, fight the fight, and to rest in peace when that time comes.
He is survived by his parents Madeline Pond, a 2018 graduate of Littleton High School, and Andrew Pond, a 2016 graduate of White Mountains Regional High School, his beloved kitties, Tigger, Mickey, and Mouse, his “papa” Paul Smith of Littleton, NH, his “nana” Jennifer Pond of Littleton, NH, his “gigi” Janice Pond and great grampa Joe Sicily of Topsham, VT, his great grandfather and grandmother Mary and Richard Hammond of Lancaster, grandfather Dave Clement, as well as many other loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and caring friends. He will always be remembered by a community of giving people who became family and were referred to as “Odin’s Army” and his loving Cornelia de Lange Syndrome community. He is pre-deceased by his sister, Iris Pond, his grandmother Lisa (Hammond) Smith, great grandparents Richard W. and Louise B. Smith.
