Jeannette boy who served as best man in parents’ wedding dies

Logan Stevenson's chubby cheeks touched hearts around the globe.

The 2-year-old's death from leukemia on Monday and the poignant story of his parents' love have drawn a spontaneous outpouring of emotion from people across the country and beyond.

“It just touches a special part in your soul,” said Carol Kintigh, a family member. “Especially a baby, especially a child in need. You feel that you need to say something.”

A national audience watched as the  Jeannette boy, in his final days, served as the best man in his parents' hastily planned backyard wedding on Saturday.

Logan died peacefully at 8:18 p.m. Monday, surrounded by his parents, Sean and Christine Stevenson, family members and loved ones...
"Well, do I convince you, that one ought never to despair of the disorders of the soul as incurable? ...For even if thou shouldst despair of thyself ten thousand times, I will never despair of thee" - St. John Chrysostom

Memory eternal.  :'( :'(
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
