9 year old Ethan Jostad went home to be with the Lord on Monday, August 8, at 1:58 p.m.

To see a community rally around one of its children has been heart warming. To expand that care and concern to the entire nation has been incredible. The "Team Ethan" Facebook page has been "liked" over 15,400 times. Ethan's personal page shows nearly 5000 friends.

And now our community will be mourning. But the sadness we face here on earth at the loss of an incredible young fighter is nothing compared to that first full deep breath of heaven that Ethan inhaled this afternoon. Ethan is more alive now that he's ever been and in that we can rejoice and be comforted.
Please continue to pray for the Jostad family.
