Sheree Davenport, a long time member of our fragile X community, and her family have experienced a terrible loss. Her father, already suffering from the debilitating effects of FXTAS is being treated at the hospital and her 18 year old son, Logan, has passed due to a tragic house fire.

Logan had no life insurance and the house was completely destroyed. All money raised will be provided to the family to use for funeral costs and in any other way needed to assist them as they recover from this terrible tragedy.

Hi everyone,

I just spoke with Logan's dad, Mickey. He wanted me to let you all know that they love you all and truly appreciate what everyone has done to support them.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they face the hard days to come.

Love to all,

Melissa

I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, prayers and donations from both the FX community and other friends. The FX community is a family in the truest sense of the word, and in addition there has been so much support from our beloved Hartwell. No words can be found in my vocabulary how much this all means to me, as Logan's and Leah's grandmother nor as Sheree's mother. Mickey is much more than my son in law, he is my sun. God bless you all. Mickey Teasley

I dont have any words to use right now to express how sorry I am for the loss of your child. You are experiencing a level of pain and loss that most people can't imagine and will never experience. I dont know what to say other than I am so sorry. But please know that I am praying that God would bring you and your family comfort.

My fingers pause over the keyboard, what could I possibly say to a family that is grieving the loss of their son, their life, their whole world. Tears flow freely as I say this to you with love...God lives. We may not understand the why's or the how could's of life, of this tragedy, but we can see God's hand. All around you. Your Fragile X family. We love you. I love you.

Although we've never met in person, you are family. I am so very sorry for your unspeakable loss. I pray that you can find some comfort in the fact that there are so many people who grieve with you and will be here for you as you begin to try to adjust to Logan's absence. You are loved.

Hi Sheree, We may not have been formally introduced but I remember when you spoke about Logan during Advocacy Day training. I was in complete awe of your courage. At this time I am praying for extra strength for you & your family. I recently read a story that may offer a somewhat comforting perspective... in my own words I will paraphrase to say that if we are on this earth to learn to live well & to love others, unconditionally... perhaps the purest souls who leave our earth so soon have already mastered this. Perhaps they don't stay down here as long, so they have until forever to do good from up there.

There are no words I can say to console you and your family but there are word that can if you seek them out. Upon losing our son I ask my Granny who had lost 4 sons how do I live through this. She handed me her Bible. I hope you can find the peace and the strength you will need. God bless.
