We want to take this time to sincerely thank everyone who has been apart of this journey. To those who have supported us financially on and off the GoFundMe page. To those who have prayed for us continually through this journey and even now. To those who came to the viewing and the funeral. I can’t tell you enough how much it meant to us that you came to our celebration of Logan’s life. Thank you for honoring and respecting him. Thank you to those who continually reach out and check in on us, to let us know you’re there and willing to listen should we need anything. It’s such a relief and blessing to know we have such amazing people supporting us; caring for us.
Thank you to those who have taken time out of their lives to provide our family with meals and groceries. It’s been such a blessing to not have to navigate through the grocery store or worry about preparing meals.
If I’m being honest, one of my biggest Thank You’s has to go to those who have helped us financially. While we weren’t able to use the money for medical bills like originally hoped. We were able to use the money to take this time off work and spend with Logan. Without your support we wouldn’t have been able to do so. With your help we were able to give Logan the funeral he deserved. With your help, Josh and I were able to “runaway” to a remote location and sit with each other and grieve and talk without the distractions of the outside world. We were able to focus on ourselves and each other. To paved the foundation for healing within ourselves and each other, so that we could come home and continue to grieve, heal and be there and guide our son Wyatt through his grief. That was priceless time for us. Had we not gone away, I don’t believe Josh and I would be as strong as we are right now in this moment. Coming home yesterday was a real struggle for us both. As all our memories of Logan are at home. As it stands, I sleep on the couch, I can’t bring myself to be in my room for too long, it makes me uneasy. I have another journey ahead. But the important thing is, I’m well enough to be Wyatt’s mom each day. And through all this, I’ve tried to remember even though Logan has left me, Wyatt is still here. So thank you for giving us that gift.
Please in no way think that what you have done for us is any less important because I didn’t put as much emphasis on it like the things above. Anything you have done or continue to do shows us you care and love us. Even something as simple as just saying “hi I love you” or “how are you” or “thinking of you” are so vitally important to us. It keeps us grounded. It shows us the life boat God has provided in this storm. So please, don’t think we aren’t appreciate of every little thing you do. And pleas, don’t say nothing at all. It is more painful to not hear from those who are important to us. If you don’t know what to say, just tell us that. But don’t be absent. That could become an unrepairable bridge. We love Logan, each and everyday, we want to talk about him. Maybe not all the time. But to not talk about him is to ignore him and dishonor his memory. He was a person, he was here and he was important. So don’t shy away from saying his name. I look at photos and videos daily of him and make comments about his chubby cheeks or the squeaky noise he made at the hospital. I want to be happy when I remember him. Not everything was sad.
In closing, I want to say we won’t keep this GoFundMe account up forever. Since Logan has passed, there aren’t as many updates to post. Sure our journey isn’t over, but the format of this page isn’t really fitting anymore. So I will keep it for just a little while longer, as we do still have medical bills rolling in. And if you feel led to donate, that’s great. And if not, that’s okay to. It’s not everyone’s purpose to give, your purpose for us may be in a different format. We welcome all your love. (Please know we hate having to have to GoFundMe in the first place) After I close the GoFundMe of you want to continue following our family and this journey, you’ll have to find us on FB. I will continue to post there.
Love all of you more than words can say
