Let the memory of Logan be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved son, Logan Kinkin, 4, born on April 19, 2011 and passed away on March 20, 2016. We will remember him forever.

Words cannot express the love that Logan exuded.  He was a caring son and brother and took every opportunity to tell us he loved us.

Logan was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare inoperable cancer of the brain stem.  Usually, there is 6-9 months survival time of this horrific disease that almost solely affects young children.  Unfortunately for us who remain on this Earth, Logan didn't want to keep God waiting and passed away less then two months later.  Up until the end of Logan's corporeal life, he continued to express his love for us despite losing the ability to walk and talk.  He found ways to blow kisses, share touches, and cuddle with us. 

He will be missed immensely by all those who knew him and touched countless lives throughout his battle with this disease.

"While the loss of a loved one is never easy, even when anticipated, it is most certainly the hardest when they are taken from us too soon. Your recent loss of your son who has left us at such a young age is definitely in the category of those hard losses for which no parent should ever have to endure.

I offer my sincere condolence and deepest sympathy on your loss. May the outpouring of sympathy, the kind acts of friends and strangers and the comfort in knowing that your loss is felt by many, help you through this difficult time.

I ask for God's blessings on you and your family. May you find the courage and strength to move forward in peace and confidence and in knowing that his was a life well-lived."

"Dear Patrick and Krisztina and family,

Words can not express how very sorry we are for your family.  May you know that we are praying fervently for you all each and every day. Love always.  Aunt MaryAnn, Uncle Rick, Ashley, and John Mark"

"Patrick and Kriszti, I am so very sorry. Logan is a sweet, innocent, beautiful little boy. As people of faith, please be reminded of another mother, devoted like Kriszti.

Her Son was also innocent, virtuous, and beautiful, and loved His mother. Then, this Son suffered a terrible death, which this mother had to witness. She experienced overwhelming grief as her Son was unjustly taken from her in the flower of His age.  

Yet later she was reunited with her Son in heaven. So too, you will be reunited with Logan.  Right now, Logan is experiencing unimaginable love and joy. This mother’s Son, Jesus Christ, is taking care of Logan – guaranteed.

I will be praying for you every day. God bless you."
