To the McDonald family: Somehow we missed hearing of the death of "JP", the grandson of John and Laurel, our good friends from St. Philip Neri. A former fellow parishioner showed up at our church here in Shawano yesterday, and the death of "JP" came up. We were so saddened to hear of such a tragic death of such a young person. We have seven grandchildren, and would be devastated over the loss of any of them. Our prayers are with all of you. May "JP" rest in peace. Love from the entire Van Kirk family.

May God's peace and grace help you during this very difficult time. My prayers are with you all.
Jenny and Family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. You remain in my thoughts and prayers. As the mother of a special needs child, this story touches my heart to think of how it seemed he made it his life's work to help those with special needs. Those kinds of people I will always hold dear. He will continue his mission from heaven. My deepest sympathies.
Dear John, Jennifer and Madeline,
I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Please know that so many are praying for you at Lumen Christi.
John and I were both helpers in a gym class for special needs kids at Homestead. He was so great with them and was always so kind to everyone he met. I have a brother and sister that had special needs that passed away, so I always appreciate when people have a compassion for those with disabilities. John was definitely one of those people I admired because of his joyful personality and accepting attitude especially towards people who are considered different. I didn't know him that well but he always took time to smile and talk to me when we would run into each other. It's so incredibly sad that such a beautiful soul has left our world. My thoughts and love are with John's family and close friends.
Jennifer and Family,
Thinking of you and praying that you find peace.
Our hearts are breaking for you at this incredibly difficult time. No one should have to bear the weight of losing a child or sibling at such a young age. There are no words to say to comfort your pain except for you to know that we are here for you in anyway that you need us. Our thoughts and prayers are constantly with you and will continue to be throughout the days to come. May you find some peace in the cherished memories that you have of JP.
Scott and Liz

So sorry to hear about your son. My thoughts and prayers go out to you & your family.
Lord God, source and destiny of our lives, in Your loving providence You gave us JP to grow in wisdom, age, and grace. Now You have called him to Yourself. We grieve over the loss of one so young and struggle to understand Your purpose. Draw him to Yourself and give him full stature in Christ. May he stand with all the angels and saints, who know Your love and praise Your saving will. Amen.
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers go out to your family. Carmi Peot
