    Mike and Jennifer. I’ve never lost a child but I have lost a grandchild. It’s like a piece of you heart being cut out. But I begin thinking of how God used her while she was alive and it brings me such peace. I pray that you will also feel that peace as you remember all the good things that Jordan accomplished in his short life.
    Your friend in Christ,

    Jordan was such an amazing person. He stuck by me for 5 years. He loved everyone so much. He came to my work 2 weeks ago to surprise me. He was telling me about his fiancé and how excited he was to be a dad 😔. I love you Jordan fly high I’ll see you when I come home. I pray for your family during this hard time.
