    Ethan, Little Man, this is for you,
    A child of the LORD so many knew.
    You are the one who made us try.
    Now many of us want to say good bye.
    He is now on the warm winds we feel
    But fight still for our Hero until we heal.

    So glad Team Ethan is going strong. The Mendenhall’s have been so strong and an inspiration to all. They now need our help to say see you later Ethan!
