From The Daily Universe's article:

'From the moment he realized Logan was hurt to when he personally escorted him across the ice, Hymas never left Logan.

“I couldn’t leave his side,” Hymas said. “I knew this was it and I just wanted to watch him go to the Lord, and let him know I support him in everything he does.”'

What great people, great examples.

I'm from Jaxon Logans home town, and when i found out what had happened i broke down in tears.. he had touched so many lives here you wouldn't believe it. I atteneded Jaxons funeral, hundreds showed up. I watched all of his close friends and mine cry for hours, we all miss him so much. We all know he is with the lord, and we know he is happy. Thank you for everyone down at BYU that were friends to Jaxon, i know he loved you all.
