43 days of life.  43 days of love.  43 days of a dream come true.

Locke knew what he was doing all along.  We simply needed to pay attention.  Thank you for your strength, courage and guidance little man.  You are an answered pray who will forever be embedded in the hearts of all those who knew your story.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

Matthew 5:4

Josh, Shan and Adelynn were surrounded by love and peace tonight as they said goodbye to their angel.  We appreciate all the support they have received throughout Locke’s journey and know that your hearts are breaking right along with ours.  Thank you,thank you, thank you for wrapping this family up in love.  Shan’s beautiful heart will write the words to this chapter of Locke’s story someday soon.  For now we grieve.

Goodbye sweet boy.  We love you.

    Only God knows the reason for everything that has occurred with your family. And someday you will all know too. For now, just believe that it all had a very real purpose, and that it did happen for a reason. Be glad you were chosen, and allow your Soul to remember his Soul. It will be forever entwined with your own. You have always been, and will forever be a part of each other’s journey. Think of him, and smile every day for the rest of your life here.
