    Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

    May the God of All Comfort wrap His arms around you during this time. Please know you're being prayed Through.

    So sorry to hear that Connor passed. Hopefully you and Colleen and your other two kids will move past the sadness soon and be able to enjoy wonderful memories of your beautiful boy.

    As others have said, there just are no words to comfort such a loss, just know that you are in our thoughts.

    Wanted to let everyone know we still have no word on the services for Connor as soon as I do I will post. The reason it is taking so long is because we decided to donate some of Connors organs. We knew as much as Connor helped so many people while he was alive he would want us to do this. We got word that his kidneys have already been transplanted in to two different people and his heart valves were also put in to two different people. We do know now that he continues to help people and parts of him will live on which gives us some comfort.

    As someone who is marginally connected to this sphere and who has seen and experienced the gut-wrenching process that people go through to make this decision too many times but has also seen the miracles this gift can bring, THANK YOU.

    Oh no! Heartfelt condolences.

    I am in awe that you have decided to save others' lives at this time. Your beautiful son will now touch the lives of even more people, and live on through them.
