- Love for the Loney Family

Last week, Ethan Loney lost his fight with cancer. Although I never met Ethan or his family in real life, I felt so connected to them through Supah's updates and and all the prayers we have shared for them. She asked us to release a white balloon in his memory this week. I wasn't able to get a balloon, but as I was praying for the family this week, I made one....

Ethan, in your two years here on this earth, you touched hearts all across the country.  I will be praying for your family.

Please remember Ethan's family this week, and also little Jaden, Ethan's friend who is fighting the same cancer right now.


  1. that is such a touching drawing...

    Isnt it wild how we feel connections with people we never met, especially when they are going through some hard times...

  2. Oh how sad! I'm saying a prayer for his family too.

  3. This is so sad! I will be praying for both families.

  4. I love the picture. It says so much.

  5. Hey Tracie.

    I wanted to stop by and say thanks for the kind words. I really am doing so much better.
    And I am so glad to be home.

    Take Care,
    -Amanda T

  6. I will certainly keep these families in my prayers.

  7. This is a beautiful sketch. So sorry to learn of this loss.

  8. Such an amazingly simple, but powerful post. You're right. The connections that we form via the Internet can be so very meaningful. I have been keeping Ethan in my thoughts and prayers as well.
