“Faith is trust in God, even when it seems very hard to turn to God in some situations we have. I know I have had some hard times believing in him. I have had some things happen to me in life where I stop and say. ‘God, where are you? Why are you letting all these things happen to me and why are you not helping me?’ But I know he is always there and that if I put my faith in him that he will make things better.”

No words can ever make sense of what has happened, nor should they... But knowing that Logan had 16 years of happiness, with a wonderful family, a dad that I've have known to be a great person from a very young age, and to see the responses from those who knew him best, especially his young peers, means that he lived a life of great meaning and contribution, making it all the more sad that his time was so short... May God Bless the family, the friends, and Logan himself...
