Memorial created 08-23-2007 by
Your Big Sister Forever
Logan Patrick Gentry
December 7 1981 - January 1 2007

On January 1, 2007 one life ended--and others were changed forever.

This memorial was created in loving memory of Logan Patrick Gentry--son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend--whose life story is told throughout this memorial website.

Although his time with us was too short--how lucky we each were to have known and loved him.

PLEASE VISIT OFTEN & SHARE A THOUGHT OR A MEMORY IN LOGAN'S GUESTBOOK.  Even if you are not able to share a memory right now, please sign your name to the guestbook.  It gives us a bit of peace and joy to know you have visited. 

We believe Logan would have liked this special way to visit and remember.

 

Logan, through the many memories we shared, you will forever be loved--never forgotten.

People from all over, young and old, share with us how much you touched their lives and warmed their hearts with your simple acts of kindness and your beautiful smile.

You are remembered for always being the life of the party. Where ever you were, is where others wanted to be. You made us laugh---you made us cry.

 

You are remembered for your love of the beach, for your love of the sun. We each have our memories of you at the beach--whether it was an awesome family vacation or a party during Spring Break.

We no longer walk with you on white sandy beaches, but instead you are now walking every single day on your perfect beach with Jesus Christ at your side.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it: "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

 

You are remembered for your love and your knowledge of sports--especially of Michigan football. You drove us crazy with the Michigan fight song--now, how we all love that tune.

Those first days after you died, you even let us know you were okay through the Michigan Wolverines. The day of your death at the Michigan bowl game, the marching band played Stairway to Heaven.

When we viewed your body to say goodbye, your Michigan bottle opener played the fight song the very moment mom kissed your hands. You gave mom--and all of us--a little peace in that moment.

Everywhere, everyday, we are reminded of you.

 

You are remembered for your love of the outdoors.

You always caught the most fish--killed the trophy deer. Many early mornings you spent in the woods on Crowville Road. Many lazy summer afternoons, were spent with buddies fishing on some lake.

You found peace in the great outdoors--in the woods, on a lake. So much serenity in fact, that you breathed your last breath on this earth in the peacefulness of your woods.

 

You were a hero to many--and you never even knew it.

You taught us so much--the meaning of being a free spirit, how to laugh, how to help others, how to roll with it, and most of all how to love... God blessed our lives and the world when he made you.

We will forever love and cherish you Logan for all that you were... And for all that you will forever be in our hearts and lives.

So faith, hope, & love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
