Ethan was a gift to all, as a 3rd grader he was a constant source of positivity and kindness. I remember Ethan going out of his way to help a new student feel welcome and included. He treated everyone with respect, already a true gentleman at such a young age. When I think of him, I see his beautiful smile that lit up the room. Prayers for all.

My daughter was sitting with me earlier and she said, Jealous of the Angels is her song for Ethan.
