I want to take a moment to thank you all. I'm sorry this is the most impersonal way, and we would like to reach out individually, but for now, thank you. We have been in awe and absolutely humbled by all of your care, love and support. There are not words to express how deeply touched we have been.
For a long time, we believed that our children were some of the last lights and hope in the world. Losing one so bright, has been a devastating loss, but all of you have given us hope. Lucky and I, as well as our family and friends, have been given a renewed look on life. Seeing so many people come together in honor of our Tiny Titan, some who didn't even know us at all, has shown that there is still good in the world. Many people have expressed how this has touched them, and seeing the outpouring has made them want to reach out and start helping others.
Again, I wish I had more words, better words to express how deeply touch we are. I want you to know that all of your prayers have been carrying us. We have a peace that surpasses all understanding. Thank you.
Whitney and Jason McConnell
Please share this post with all of our friends and family. Whitney and Jason McConnell are wearing something green to Logan's memorial service on Monday. We are asking friends and family to wear green on Monday, as well. I want a flood of green to show up on Facebook and all social media on Monday to share are love for Logan and respect and Love for their family! Please post pictures of yourselves on Monday wearing GREEN, so that Whitney and Jason Bradley McConnell can see all those people who have been touched by Logan!
Please wear green on Monday April 28, 2014 in remembrance of Logan Gage McConnell
This is a post from TJ Williams Facebook Page, He is Logan's Grandpa.
"Since seeing the contributions last night for Logan, I have been trying to gather the proper words for all that everyone has done in support of Whitney and Bradley. I know that you can always rely on family in times like this, but I have to thank all of our family, grandparents, parents, aunts uncles, brothers sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews for doing so much more. I won't use names because I would be afraid to leave one of you out, on either side. Thank you all!!!
So many people contributed leaving me in awe in the short amount of time. Whether you contributed or reposted the link I cannot thank you enough for helping. The names of those that helped are a reflection of past and present memories of people that our families hold close to our hearts.
However, I have been asked and feel obliged to give a "Shout Out" to the 101st Airborne. Thank you!
I ask that you still keep the McConnell's in your thoughts and prayers. The reality of it all is starting to hit home for them.
We are truly blessed with amazing friends and family. I honestly cannot put in to words how amazed and completely humbled we are.
God Bless all of you."
Thank you all so much for your support. Today reality is setting in on the family and we need all the prayer support you can muster! Please put them on your church prayer list, Christian Radio prayer list and let everyone you know that this family still needs us all to be there for them. On Monday, I am asking everyone to wear kelly Green (Logan's favorite color) as to remember this sweet baby boy, and stand with his family. Please take a picture and post it so that Whitney and Jason Bradley can see all of us standing with them on one of the hardest days of their lives.
Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. NKJV
Ps 46:1-2 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; NKJV

This is from Whitney McConnell's Facebook page,
"We want to thank everyone for your amazing love, prayers, and support. We are simply at a loss for words and humbled. We can not thank you all enough. I know many of you have asked, so a memorial in Logan's honor will be held Monday, April 28, 2014, at 12:00, at First Southern Baptist Church, 900 S. Taylor St., Fallon, NV., and simultaneously at 2:00 PM, Fisher Foursquare Church, 202 E. Division St., Fisher, IL. 61843.
Thank you again. Lucky and I are just overcome with gratitude."

We have raised $10,690.00 Simply Amazing! We will have to pay gofundme 5% and 3.9 % + .30 per transaction to the company that processes the money. So, we will owe them around $800.00. This is so worth it! So grateful to all of you for everything you have done. We will keep this site open at the request of many individuals that have not been able to contribute yet. We will update you as to any new news tomorrow. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Thanks again for reposting, keep it up so that all those that give get to see the progress.
A very proud aunt!
This is one of the most amazing things I have ever been a part of with social media. Jeremy Bell (Whitney's Uncle) brought it to my attention that with all the horrible things going on in this world there is still great people with pure intentions doing amazing things. Thank You, Thank You, Thank you from the bottom of my families and my heart! We feel renewed by your resourcefulness and generosity. The money will not be used in vain and I am hoping that any additional funds would go toward something positive to remember Logan.
Love and gratitude,
I just talked to Whitney McConnell on the phone, and she is so completely overwhelmed by your generosity and support. They are going to be able to put the obituary in the paper in Fernely, Nevada and Champaign, Illinois as soon as the first deposit from "gofundme" gets to their bank. They are starting to plan arrangements and have the assurance that they will be able to pay for the mounting cost because of all of your support. PLEASE make sure that your donation gets approved by your bank or credit card, so there will not be a delay in the funds being released to the McConnell family. We have set up the funds to go directly to an account that Whitney McConnell has set up. No funds will go to me or any other person that is helping raise the funds for the McConnell's. Please Keep Posting the Link, Thank You, Thank You,
Love and Gratitude
The messages you are leaving on this page are so sweet and inspiring. Our family feels the love, prayers and emotions that all of you are sharing with us. Yesterday was very tough for the McConnell family as they had to go get burial clothes for the family, I am sure you can imagine how hard it was to by Logan's final outfit. Keep praying for God to hold this family and comfort them. We are doing so well on reaching the goal of $10,000. Keep RePosting this so more can be apart of this great gift!

The McConnell Family
Again, I am in awe of how kind people are being for my niece and her family! This has been so difficult for us to endure. But, this "gofundme" page has brought a light of hope and joy to our family. We are so incredibly gratefully for all of you helping pay for the funeral and related expenses. We are above 75% of our goal! Please Keep RePosting so we can reach our goal of 10,000.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for blessing us with prayers and donations. This is simply AMAZING! The song I am posting is how many of us feel when we go through trials, I hope it brings peace to everyone else as you listen to it. God provides for us as we cry out for his help!
I am so excited by the amount of support for the McConnell Family! Please keep sharing this post so that more people can help us raise our goal! You are all so special to us! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Thanks to all those who keep sharing this post! You are all making a difference in a family's life. Words cannot express our gratitude. My prayer is that the entire family and friends will feel held in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ!
This is a post from TJ Williams Logan's Grandpa;
"Firstly, we cannot express the gratitude that Whitney and Bradley, along with the rest of our family feel for the outpouring of support from all around the world in this tragic event.
I believe that God put Logan here with us for a short time to fulfill a specific purpose. No one wants to go through the loss of a child. However, the impact that Logan and McConnell's have had on their friends and family is profound. To hear young men and women crying out to God on his behalf, who before befriending this family, would have rather cursed God, can only show God's hand in this. I believe that one day we will hold him and walk with him in the company of Lord and Savior.
Angel and I, on behalf of the McConnell's, cannot begin to thank ALL OF YOU for you overwhelming response to our families.
Finally, I have to put my pride aside and share this post from Angel's sister, Andrea Bell Gibson. For those who feel led to contribute or repost, please do so. Anything, would be appreciated
Thank you all for everything you have said and done."
Thanks again for your generosity:)
Owen, Cammy and Logan's Great Aunt
