    The loss of your beautiful little man hits very close to home for me. I too have lost a son. A beautiful 17 year old boy. Our children also go to American Heritage School. I feel for you. I understand how you feel. I am very sorry for your loss. I also know without a doubt that our boys are watching out for our families from the other side of the veil. That they will be waiting for our reunion with open arms. I am so grateful for the knowledge and understanding we have of eternal life. I am so grateful for a Heavenly Father who helped me get through what seemed to be an unbearable period of time. Hold on tightly to your faith. We will be praying for your family.

    So many tragic stories the last few weeks, and while I have not personally known any of the people affected I am really overcome by the magnitude of their losses. So tragic and sad. For those of you mourning please know that so many of us, people that do not know you personally, are simply heartbroken for your lossess and what we know you have to endure.

    Your Keaton is absolutely beautiful. My heart goes out to you during this time of temporary separation. May you feel his presence letting you know families are eternal.

    Man oh man, this summer has been rough. 19 firefighters die in Arizona and now this little guy from American Fork. May God bless this family.

    My heart is broken at your loss, but I take comfort at your strong religious convictions and am sure your "little man" is in the Lords loving care. Jesus said to His disciples; "Suffer the little children to come unto me for unless a man become as a little child he can in no wise inherit the Kingdom of God." Families are forever. He is waiting for you on the other side of the veil. It will be in the quiet times, if you listen with your heart, that you know that he is with you. I hope you find peace in knowing that your precious boy is forever sealed in the Celestial Kingdom, and that his mission in the next life has now begun. You will see each other again at Jesus feet.
