Jordan, Kari and Family,
Somehow the last post I just wrote didn't seem adequate, so I deleted it. However, I'm not sure anything I can type on blog will ever be adequate. I have been blessed to witness your faith through our phone conversation and your posts. Know that you, Peyton, and your families will continue to be in my prayers and those of my wife and prayer partners here in Searcy. I love you guys, Jim Ward

What an adorable little guy. As I we watch little Lucas run around, we cannot imagine your grief during this difficult time. We hope you find peace and contentment knowing that dear little Drew is suffering no longer, and I'm sure during his brief time, you, Kari, Peyton and family have surrounded him with more love than many see in a lifetime.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Beautiful service today everyone. It was a perfect tribute to a perfect little boy.
Thank you Dennis and Kevin for your touching words, and to James for doing the reading, and especially to Jordan and Kari for having the courage to stand in front of all of us and speak from your hearts.
Thanks to Nicola and Jason H and whoever else who helped put the slideshow together.
I can't help but feel like Drew belonged to all of us, even just a little bit, so thank you all for your work today on behalf of our Drew.

Lots of love, Sarah Polley
