Logan lived with his father and brother and was visiting his mother when the crash happened, the page read. The crash left Logan’s dad, Clay, with both the emotional page and a financial burden.

“This child was a bright light in the world. He loved his family, his friends and all types of creatures with scales or fur,” the page read. “His mind was quick and he was a joy to be around. The world is a darker place without him.”
