Our Peaceful Warrior is now our Warrior at Peace

On July 2nd, 2012 Paxton Bowe Andrews ended his battle with cancer.  He passed peacefully in the comfort and protection of his Daddy's arms. His Momma was lying next to him whispering final words of motherly love and adoration in his ear.  

The family is devastated at the loss of their beautiful boy, but is seeking a small amount of reprieve in the notion that their baby is no longer in pain. As his Daddy so eloquently put it, "Paxton was an angel that God inadvertently let slip past his watch; once he realized his error - he called for him back."  

Paxton was ten days shy of his five month birthday when he passed. In those five months he changed the lives of everyone with whom he came into contact.  Danna & John hope that Paxton is remembered - not for his battle with cancer, rather for his gentle spirit, easy smile, and beautiful soul.  All who encountered Paxton will attest that his smile melted your heart, his voice lifted your spirit, and his eyes captured your soul.  To know Paxton, was to love Paxton.  

John and Danna will be having a Memorial Service to honor their sweet son Paxton. Details will follow shortly.  

The following prayer will eternally remain, "Paxton's Prayer" - - please sing it to him as oft as you are able:

Gentle Jesus. stay beside me through this day and night.

Take away my pain. Keep me safe.

Help me when I am afraid.

Make my body strong again and my heart glad.

Thank you for the love that surrounds me.




So many people loved Paxton, and so many people provided their love and support to John and Danna; for that they will remain infinitely grateful.

I hope that you find comfort in the following and know that Paxton was never alone and will never be alone.


May Paxton rest in peace for all eternity.  You will always be our beautiful baby, and our Peaceful Warrior.
