Message from CJ's Family:
While CJ only spent a short 40 days and 40 nights with us here on earth, he left a lasting impression in the hearts of all those who had the opportunity to love him. Maggie, Chad, Noah and family would like to see CJ’s lasting impression left on Earth, in the form of new and everlasting growth. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that each of you consider planting a tree, small or large, in honor of little CJ, as a lasting and living memorial to his brief, but very meaningful life. Trees do so much to improve the environment. Most importantly, they release precious oxygen, the one thing that little CJ could not get enough of in his time here on earth.

If you choose to plant a tree in remembrance of CJ, Chad and Maggie would like to provide a plaque at some appropriate time in the future to be placed on the tree. These trees, planted across the world in the various yards and locations where Chad, Maggie and Noah have loved ones, will be wonderful places for them to visit and to remember CJ in the company of each of you, their friends and family who mean so much to them.

We thank all of you for your prayers, written memorials and words of encouragement--for your love and thoughtfulness along this unusual family journey to an unexpected destination. Our task is to accept the unexpected. This task will last much longer than the 40 days and 40 nights of CJ's earthly life. Thank you for your willingness to continue this journey with us of growth and healing. We know you will be with us every step of the way.
