Losing Logan

I want to share my story of Faith after losing Logan: On 12/18/14, at 8:15pm, I got a call from the emergency room stating Logan was there and a large team was working on him. No other info. What?!? I just saw him about an hour ago?!? He snuck out on his bike to go to the store at the end of our street and never made it. He got hit by a neglectful 16 year old driver. I never got to say goodbye and that I loved him, but he knew. Somehow my husband and I made it to the hospital only to be told he passed away from a brain injury 15 min earlier. I fell to my knees and cried in pain, agony, and disbelief. I prayed to God for strength. Literally, in 2 seconds I was calm enough to see him. I am NOT a strong person at all but the strength the Holy Spirit gave me that night has not left me since. When I feel like I'm losing it, I pray & immediately feel calm. Needless to say, Christmas wasn't the same this year but it made my family and I realize it's about Jesus & not material things. I know Logan believed. He confessed his sins and asked Jesus into his heart a few months before and he understood the meaning. I haven't fully accepted his passing but I feel that's God's way of protecting me..easing me into it. I know I'll see Logan again. THAT, God has promised and I believe. God's plan was bigger than I could ever imagine. Logan touched so many people. Friends and strangers tell me they accepted Jesus after Logan passed. Especially teenagers! Maybe that was Logan's purpose in life. God gives me strength, who am I to question. I don't know when I'll see him again..only when God sees fit and I've fulfilled my purpose on Earth. Until then, I'll do everything I can to bring whoever I can to Jesus. If you feel invincible, like Logan did, you're not. He was the strongest guy I know. You never know when your time is up so please be ready at all times. I'm stil in a state of semi-shock but when reality hits, it Hits! To lose your child (he was also my best friend) is the worst pain imaginable. I just have to believe and trust in God. It must be done to survive, and for strength and comfort. Logan wouldn't want to see me this way, and I don't want to break God's heart. Logan was an All Star Rec baseball player, could fix anything, a free spirit, and a country boy. An all around good guy. But after what he's experienced in Heaven, I would be selfish to ask him back to this evil world. As much as I'd ove it, I have to say. We're human. There is a hole in my heart that can never be replaced, but God is good at fixing things too. We love and miss you, Logan, more than ANY words can ever begin to express❤️

I also buried my son.
by: Lynette Sanders

I was crying today and searching online for answers on how to live without the love of my life. My 20 year old son passed on August 13, 2015 from injuries sustaiined in a car accident. My heart is broken and I pray all the time but ask why as well. Thank you for sharing your story and for making me feel as I'm not alone. Eric was an amazing young man.... Godly, caring,helping others, student athlete, always positive and an awesome son/dad. Your son has that beautiful smile like Eric. Our angels are now flying high. Prayer is all we got. God bless! 🙏🏼👼🏻

It was then that I carried you...
by: Kathleen

I too believe that God has carried me through my loss. I am sorry about your son, I could not imagine the heartbreak of losing a child, but your faith and strength help to strengthen me, and I thank you for taking the time out, while grieving, to support others ho are hurting. What a wonderful testimony to yours and your son's spirit. May God continue to bless and keep you.

Beautiful tribute
by: Anonymous

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your son Logan. I too lost my son on June 9, 2014. Both he and his girlfriend died of an accidental overdose. To say the news was devastating is putting it mildly.
Michael, my only child, was also my best friend and love of my life. I wish I could have the degree of faith that you have - I'm working on it. What keeps me going is believing that I WILL see my precious Michael again.
Please know that my heart goes out to you and your family.
Gale - Michael's mom

Michelle I am so Sorry for your loss of such a precious son at such a young age.
No mother can ever understand the loss of a child. We often think of children living out their lives and and not dying before their parents.
I am so happy that Logan understood Jesus and being saved and that He accepted Jesus. This makes all the difference. We are here on this earth for a purpose and we are meant to Bless others, and be disciples to each other. Knowing Jesus is coming back for us does fill one's heart with Comfort and Strength to face our Adversity and trials of life. No one likes sorrow and suffering and loss. But through it God is with us and carrying us through it and making us stronger so we can bear our grief.
What a friend we have in Jesus. All our sins and griefs to bear. What a privelege to carry. Everything to God in Prayer. May God comfort and Bless you each day as you seek his strength to bear you up through your sorrow. Knowing you will see your son again.

I am sorry
by: Anonymous

I am very sorry for your loss, we lost our 22 year old to suicide 17 months ago. Each day I am reminded of the great loss. I can say from one heart to another. I know your pain. I am thankful that this sight came about as I have found posting to be a great source of freeing the pain and grief. I have good days and bad days. I ask God over and over why God why? I replay it over and over as if by replaying the end would be different. It is not.
Our son had so much to offer. I read a lot in the beginning about every book I could get my hands on about Heaven and peoples experience's.
There are no words that anyone could say. No words. Trust in the lord. That is all any of us can do.
Again I am so sorry for your loss of your beautiful son. I pray the lord to help your family though this.

My prayers are yours
by: Debi

Dear Michelle,
I was deeply moved by your wonderful words and the deep and abiding love you feel for your precious son. He was indeed a handsome beautiful boy and still is, in God's care. I honestly don't know why bad things happen to such good people but I have no doubt all will be revealed in time. Our prayers, faith and love in God are the only weapons we have against this sometimes wonderful but often cruel life. What a magnificent weapon they are though Michelle. I am not surprised you were calmed by prayer, God will comfort your soul whenever you need it because you are his and he has a love as deep for you as your is for your beautiful Logan with his shining baby blue eyes. I read this and thought of you
'I have not left you. I am simply enjoying the next stage of my life so please do not cry. Rejoice in the fact that I am happy, remember that I will always love you and smile because one day we shall meet again.'

I lost my beloved mum very suddenly 8 months ago and my father again, very suddenly, a few years before that. I am all to familiar with grief but nothing compares to losing your baby.

Speak to Logan just as you always did and you will hear him respond in your heart. Cry when you need to, but smile too. One day you will see in colour again Michelle. My love and prayers go out to you and your family XXX
