  15. Logan remains a beautiful child of our Lord. words can never be enough. You Parkridge family has all of you in prayer. I suffered a loss in 2003 (both my husband and me). Our daughter Blake fought and what we learned was Our Lord keep s our children surrounded. the out pouring of love and compassion helped us take the steps we needed to to heal. Groce funeral home also helped us get through at that time and they were very loving people and made us feel like family. I work in Radiology department if you need me for anything. may The Lord protect and love you even more as you take this very path one step at a time. love Ryan

    Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. I am so sad that I will not be able to join you next Sunday to celebrate Logan’s precious life, I won’t be back from Florida until late that night. Just know I will continue praying for all who love Logan. My the Lord continue to hold all of you in the palm of His hand.

  18. Kristen and Glen and family. I can only imagine your grief. No I do not know you but a baby has been called home as an angel by Jesus and I need to try and share some words of comfort that gets me through tough times knowing that Jeus will be waiting for me on the other side of that river with all that left before me. If Logan could tell you something, it might be this: ‘ My pastor always says our lives are streams flowing into the same river towards whatever heaven lies in the mist beyond the falls. Find the joy in your life, Kristen and Glen, or Mommy and Daddy. Close your eyes and let the waters take you home. God bless you all, God bless you all.

  22. Glen, Kristen, Hannah, Aidan & Family,
    Please know that my prayers and thoughts are with you in your time of sorrow. Logan’s short life seemed to be a test of faithfulness. You were faithful to prepare by getting the ultrasound. You were faithful to provide care as shown by many efforts to get to Duke even as the circumstances of the birth were somewhat unexpected and unusual. You were faithful to pray as shown by numerous messages via email. And we, your friends and family, have been faithful to participate in watching his progress and praying for all concerned. With the upcoming services, I’m sure you and others will be faithful in paying respects. I encourage your life ahead to show faithfulness by promoting the lessons you’ve learned. May God comfort you always, and may He be praised at the future reunion with your son and brother.

  25. I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet baby boy. May you find comfort in God’s Word where he promises soon to ‘swallow up death forever and…wipe the tears from all faces.’ (Isaiah 25:8) When that time comes you will be able to hold your little boy in your arms again right here on the earth transformed into a beautiful paradise like it was in the beginning. Until then, please know your family is in my prayers.
