2 years ago, I was blessed to teach one of the kindest little guys you’d ever meet. While Jordan was given a heart of gold and the sweetest smile, he was also given a very imperfect body. Jordan lived each day of his life in pain and faced life with courage and remarkable character. The tumors that consumed his body prevented him from running and playing like other kids, but didn’t prevent him from dreaming. He dreamed of the day when he’d jump and swing. He dreamed of a life without a wheelchair. From a very young age, little Jordan dreamed of Heaven.
A Sad Day For Us, A Happy Day For Heaven
Yesterday, Jordan left this life and went to a better place. While I can’t help my selfish urge to want him back, I know that Jordan is finally free. I feel privileged to have been a part of his life. I feel so lucky to have seen him smile, to have had the chance to make him laugh, and to have been able to tell him I loved him. This world lost one of the sweetest souls ever put on earth, but we gained an angel. You’ll be forever missed and forever in our hearts. We love you Jordan. Now run and play my sweet friend!
