There was a lot of good in today. I can’t say that today was a good day, but I can say it had good in it. We were surrounded by loving faces all day long. It was exhausting though, and all I can post tonight is Brody’s obituary. It ran in today’s paper.
Brody Andrew Novak graduated to Heaven on May 2, 2017. He was 16 months old.
Diagnosed with a rare genetic disease at birth, Brody had exceeded all expectations and was enjoying a beautiful life.
He loved to be outside; he would notice birds far off in the distance and watch them fly. He loved to be read to and to play with books. We were always amazed at how he would immerse himself in play. He adored his big brother who enthusiastically embraced him from day one.
We miss Brody’s big, wet kisses. We miss his adorable laugh. We miss his gorgeous eyes and warm smile. We will miss seeing how strong and handsome he would have become. We expected to live a full, rich life with him by our side. We have lost an incredible gift and a source of great joy.
Brody is survived by his loving parents, Jensen and Myrrhanda Novak, by his proud brother, Bryson, by his paternal grandparents Dave and Louise Novak and by his maternal grandparents David and Trish Keam. As well as by great grand parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and a large extended family who adored him. We mourn, but we remember the hope we have in Jesus. We are thankful He is with him now.
Please join us for a memorial service on Monday, May 8 at 1:00PM. The service will be in the main sanctuary at Spring Church, 595 Lagimodiere.
