An Alabama father, whose conjoined twins passed away Friday, posted a new message on Facebook thanking everyone for their support.
 
Michael Hamby and his wife Robin are now home, according to the video post.
 
Robin gave birth to the twins on Thursday, but the boys, named Asa and Eli, passed away Friday night.

The twins were born and were being treated at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
 
The boys shared a torso, arms and legs. Because they also shared a heart and circulatory system, doctors said separation was not an option.
 
In the message, Michael said the last few days have been very draining and heartbreaking for him and his wife.
 
"We both filled out birth certificates for the boys, and that's something that supposed to be joyous, and it wasn't," Michael said. “We’ve had a very hard, hard week as you know, with the boys coming and passing.”

The Hambys invited the public to a memorial service for the twins.

That service will take place Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Ladonia Baptist Church in Phenix City, Alabama.
