Myra and Jeff
I have been thinking of Evan and you throughout this Christmas season. Evan was so gracious in preparing you to see him in all the wonderful things in nature that he loved. Father Bob talked about the dog name Hershey in remeberance of our friend Evan that is now a part of our Nativity scene at the church and it brought tears to my eyes. Because of all of the things that Evan loved, there will be a beautiful reminder of him everyday and every season. I was so glad to see your posting. May you find peace and comfort in the wonderful memories you have

Good afternoon Myra and Jeff, I have kept your family close to my heart and I was glad to read your latest posting. It was very clear to me how much faith Evan had and I compliment both of you as his parents for I'm sure you had a big influence in Evan's faith. In most of my adult life up until 3 months ago I had pulled myself away from the church and my commitment to God. Life events and something or someone tugged at my emotions put me back in the Lords house again. It feels very good to be back in church and faith back in my heart. Seeing the strength, courage and faith Evan had sent a message to me and he was probably one of the forces that drew me back to God 3 months ago. I'm so sorry for the loss of Evan, I pray for your strength as parents. God Bless and as I liked to end my messages to Evan, Be Cool

So glad to hear there was a beautiful white Christmas in Illinois this year! It was 72 here in New Smyrna Beach, FL on Christmas day. A bit colder now...dropped into the 40's & 50's during the day.

There has not been a day that's went by since Evans passing that I have not thought of that sweet boy at some point throughout the day. I know for sure that he will be a part of my heart and my families', as well, for all our days. Our Father crosses certain paths for a reason. Evan was a beautiful path for us to cross and has made an impression on our hearts and minds. We cherish life and each other a little more because of Evan being shared with us:)

A very merry new year and many comforting blessings to you both!

Hugs from the Byrds


Sweet Evan

Name that object. It is a close up shot, so close that it is difficult to identify the object in the picture. The next picture shows it in its entirety and you think, "Oh, of course!" This is life for a believer. We don't always understand or identify with our circumstances. We sometimes wonder how God could allow such grief and pain, especially to those who follow Him. I believe that when we get to Heaven, because He shed His blood, we will understand all of these things, and it will make perfect sense. We will see our Evan, and our other loved ones. We will spend the remainder of time in perfect, perfect happiness. Evan just beat us to it. He touched my life and so many other lives. Being selected to enter perfect Heaven earlier than normal is such an amazing gift. We left Brookwood Hills Christmas morning, and as we drove by Burr Oaks I became very choked up thinking about Christmas without my little boy. I cannot fathom, but one thing I know for sure is that Our Lord and Savior has unimaginable perfection waiting for us, and I believe with all my heart that this blink of time on Earth has purpose, and that purpose was fulfilled by little Evan in ways none of us will fully understand.


Thank you Evan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Hoffmans, I'm watching 'Monk' with the snow on the ground....I didn't ever watch Monk before getting to know Evan. "God bless us everyone"... I knew Evan would be running and inspiring Heaven before we could say "let it snow"...XO
