I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally for your prayers and everything that was given to the family on the loss of our super hero Logan Howard. It has amazed us and his parents, Jaimie Sparks and Clint Howard, how much people really care. We have had some negative comments made to us, but the kindness we have been shown has outweighed the negative. The family wants to thank everyone that came to be with them, brought food, gave money or put us in your prayers. We all thank you so much and please don’t ever forget that wonderful little boy. We never will.
