You covered me in my mother’s lap. I want to praise you; for I am made awesome and wonderful: wonderful are your works Psalm 139: 13-14
Coltan James Eastman Jr, or CJ, was born at 3:05 a.m. on Monday, December 6, 2021, and went to Jesus at 4:11 a.m. after learning that CJ’s time with us is likely due to trisomy 13 would be. our family set out to live life together for as long as we could. Over the next four months, CJ was able to do some of the things his family loves most. He went camping, fishing, ate at favorite restaurants, attended sporting events in Utah, went to a national park, cheered on jazz, played golf, went on a road trip, celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving, had a half-birthday party, visited both oceans, rode an airboat through the Everglades, took a number of flights, rode roller coasters, and even visited Disneyland. He was also blessed to enjoy some of the simpler joys in life like watching a beautiful sunset over the ocean, eating a snow cone in the heat of summer, playing in a playground with his sister, listening to lots of good music, taking a ride too going through the gorge in autumn, cutting down a fresh Christmas tree, having a snowball fight with the family, beautiful Christmas lights and watching the sunrise over the mountains. He also saw Utah Football win the South Division and its first Pac-12 championship! We thought he liked juice too, but mostly coffee, peaches, marshmallows, ice cream, soup, and peanut butter.
Although his time on Earth was short compared to most of the rest, his life had left its mark. He brought our families together and created lasting experiences and memories that we will always cherish. He influenced the lives of other babies by donating to a local pregnancy crisis center on his behalf. He taught so many that no matter how bad the prospect, there is always a reason to keep fighting. And most of all, he proved that God created him to change our lives and our world forever. His life was a constant reminder that tomorrow is not promised and our life is but a haze. And as it is in 2 Cor. 6: 2 means, behold, now is the day of redemption. Salvation that comes through faith in Jesus and Jesus alone. For by grace you are saved through faith; and not that of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, so that no one could boast. Eph. 2: 8-9
CJ will be celebrated at Faith Baptist Church (2430 N Fairfield Rd, Layton 84041) at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 18, 2021. In honor of his life and all that he has brought us, we ask that you wear your favorite color to create a beautiful rainbow in his memory – a symbol of God’s faithfulness and promise to us.
We will love you forever, CJ! Dad, mom & your big sister
I will go to him, but he will not come back to me. 2 Samuel 12:23
