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.
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!
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.
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

"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!

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. Logan Gage McConnell August 27, 2013 April 19, 2014 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."
We work with Logan's great-grandmother, Maggie Miller at State Farm in Champaign, IL. We are so very sorry for your loss and have all been thinking about you and praying for you during this difficult time. Our sincere regrets....Steve, Cindy, Lisa, Jennifer, Ashley & Brandon
