A tragedy took this beautiful little boy's life on Saturday April 19, 2014. Whitney & Jason McConnell laid their beautiful baby boy down for a nap and within 30 minutes he died.  Whitney and Jason Bradley McConnell and their extended families lives have been turned upside down!  No parent should ever have to outlive their child.  Now, the family is having to face tough decisions about funeral arrangements, telling his brother (5yrs) and his sister (2 yrs) that their baby brother is gone, and mounting funeral expenses. The toughest obstical is facing life without Logan.  To make matters worse the family does not have life insurance or savings to cover the cost of a funeral and all the other expenses of his death.  This child was loved by so many people, it would be wonderful to help this family in their hour of need. PLEASE consider making a donation to Logan Gage McConnell's funeral expenses.

This is a quote from his mother Whitney's faceBook page,
"We found out we were pregnant with Logan on Christmas Eve 2012 and he passed on Easter Eve aka Black Saturday 2014. This is a dark day, but the light is knowing he is with Jesus and we will see him again."

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

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!

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."
