    This breaks my heart so much! I am terribly sorry you are going through this. I pray Jesus covers you and yours and holds you extra close! May the Holy Spirit our comforter comfort all who mourn. May God’s love overwhelm you even in the darkest time.

    Much love

    Hallee, that is such a beautifully tragic and authentic writing. We only knew each other casually for a few years in High School but maybe it’s the father in me, I literally had to stop mid reading because I was balling for you, your son Jeb and your family. And, it actually brought comfort to know Jeb was so loved and had touched so many in his short time here. Thank you for sharing that.

    And Chandra and I will continue to keep all of your family in our prayers.

    I have observed your life and your family on FB for a few years. You are an author who helped me rediscover my joy of reading. My heart hurts for you living the nightmare many of us fear. I know God is good and I’m so thankful he is carrying you and your family through this heartbreaking time. You all are in my prayers. Thank you for sharing your family, your heart and your faith with us❤️

    I have been blessed by you on Facebook, Hallee.
    It took a bit of time to read this because my tears blurred your words.
    I have a son who is a few months older than your Johnathan. My heart aches for you as you grieve the loss of your precious boy. I’m very sorry.
    Yes, God is good. Always. Yet the grief in loss is so incredibly heart wrenching.
    I will continue to keep you and your family close in my prayers. ❤️

    This was so poetically heartbreaking. Jeb was such an amazing kid, and I know how very proud of him you were.
    I’m not very religious, but I have been praying for you and your family to find peace.

    May the Lord continue to hold you in His arms. Praying for peace and strength for you and your family. I lost my Dad on April 23rd and can also say God is good even if the situation sucks. I will keep praying for you!!

  1. Hallee, I continue to mourn with and pray for you and Gregg. My heart aches for you at such an unfathomable loss.

    There are simply no words. May God grant you the peace that transcends all understanding. Jebs story and faith and your words inspire me to have so more to have a closer relationship with the Lord.

    As the mom of a 14 year old man-boy, I grieve with you. I can’t imagine him gone. Celebrating your son’s life while grieving your loss is an oxymoronic process. But God. Praying for healing and hope while feeling and processing the grieving. With my own two little babies in heaven, I pray for your momma heart ❤️‍

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I am keeping your family in my prayers.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss Hallee. I will be praying for you as you navigate the days ahead.

  3. Hallee, your family is such a beautiful blessing to others. Ephesians 1:3 This blog post spoke to my heart – thank you. How fortunate I am that God sat me next to you at an awards ceremony in Vegas. From one mother to another, I feel your loss and praise the joy.

    What a beautiful tribute to your son. I’m crying with you, as I have so many times since I heard the news. You remain in my prayers.

  4. Hallee, I wept my way through this post, both for the sad circumstances but also for the testimony of your words. I know from personal experience that grieving is necessary and so individual. I also know that God is with you and each member of your family and will be near each step of the way as you walk this path.

    You all continue to be in my prayers. I cannot imagine the pain and am so grateful to see the beauty that lives on from Jeb’s life. Prayers for peace and comfort.

  5. Thank you for your beautiful testimony. When I heard about this on the ACFW loop and read the obituary, I was stunned and grieved for you and all that was stolen by a premature death. Your courage can only come by grace and I praise God for giving that to you and all your family.
    Thank you once more. I wish I had more words, but they fail.

  6. My heart breaks for you and your family. What an amazing son you had, with such deep faith. I can’t wait to meet him when we’re all reunited again. You and your family remain in my prayers.
