Was checking CaringBridge and found this from some friends whose daughter is still impacted 2 years later...
If not for the love we have shared, it would be hard to conceive how any parent could deal with the loss of a child. Our hearts are heavy and we mourn with the Uekman's for their son Garrett.
But we know how Michelle, and Danny, and Meagan will cope - the same way they helped us cope 2 years ago - through the kindness and support of family and friends who, through God's love and mercy, will continue to be there for them.
During the months that Mary was hospitalized, Michelle was one of the saintly women who stayed with Mary, allowing us to go home to eat dinner or get a night's rest. She and Meagan were so good with Mary, and you could feel their love when they walked in the room.
It is that same love that we know the Uekman's will experience in this tragedy.
We pray for God to give you the peace of heart that you will need. You know that we love you and will hold you in our hearts.
Jesus, we place our trust in You.
