BRODY ANDREW NOVAK 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-grandparents, 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 1:00 p.m. The service will be in the main sanctuary at Spring Church, 595 Lagimodiere.

Condolences & Memories (19 entries)

  • Jensen and Myrrhanda, I was so sad to hear about the loss of your little Brody. Jensen, I don't know if you remember me, but we were good friends of your family when you were growing up. I'm friends with Jessica on FB and learned about your son. I cannot imagine what you are both going through but know my heart goes out to you both and you are in my prayers. Jessica shared a link to Myrrhanda's blog and the excerpts I read warmed my heart and somehow in the midst of her grief and suffering, I was encouraged. I pray you will know God's gentle presence as you walk through this time. With much love, Mona (Henderson) Ungefug - Posted by: Mona (Henderson) Ungefug (Friend of family) on: May 27, 2017
