Thank you to all who supported our family and helped to honor Elijah as we learned of his passing. Elijah was an amazing young man, and his life and death have had a significant impact on the lives of so many people. As we understand more of Elijah’s life and the touch of God upon him, we see the fingerprints of God on many aspects of who he was. Elijah was determined to have an impact on the world as he wanted people everywhere to live their lives on purpose to the glory of God.
We are publishing this website to provide ongoing insights and encouraging thoughts as we explore how God’s fingerprints are everywhere if we simply pay attention.
Ken and Melanie, this is a great way to encourage others in the Lord through Elijah’s tragic passing. Prayers continue to rise for each of you, and your words and thoughts are so appreciated. Thank you for your words of wisdom and encouragement. This website is going to be such a blessing to Elijah and to the Glory of God. Blessings to all of you!!!
Dear Buchanan Family, I just watched the video clips from Elijah’s service. I’m heartbroken for you all. Melanie, I remember you saying our son, Jack Johnson, reminded you of one of your sons. I can’t help but wonder if that was Elijah. I’m so glad that you have the assurance of his salvation and the blessed hope of seeing him again.

I am a believer in faith because I lost a brother and sister in a two months time, about 6 years ago.Just to let you know I,am new to this computer,I just started to write about a month ago.So please have patience with me.and my spelling.I just want to tell you that I am a Cretin high school grad.In 1981.So you know I am catholic.I know all about depression and drugs. I was there just about my whole life.I just want to share a little story with you.In the 5th grade at St. Francis De,Sales In St.Paul. Sister Shiela stopped the class because a siren from a ambulance was in the background and she class when ever you here that sound say 3hailmarys for that person. I am 52 years old and to this day I always say 3hailmarys for who ever may need them.I never thought that I would live to be 25 years old because the stupid things I have done to myself.And here my brother and sister are gone.WHY? only GOD knows because we as people in faith have to ask why did these things happen to good people.
