This has been one of the toughest weeks of my life, as we too quickly said goodbye to our beloved friend Jon Gregoire. We miss him so much already.
And I’ve never in my life seen my university and home church rally around a family and comfort all of us in such a big way. I couldn’t be prouder.
We still found ways to worship, and to laugh and celebrate Jonny’s life and his infectious faith in Christ. I was privileged to be a part of some of the most amazing memorial services I’ve ever witnessed. Jonny brought us together in ways we would never have dreamed possible.
And Donna Gregoire, you and your husband are our heroes. You found a reason to rejoice throughout this whole week. It even ended with a whiffle ball game packed with nearly a hundred of us as we renamed the stadium after your son.
This tragedy is already being redeemed. We’re in this together. Now and for eternity.
