Coco man, our sweet warrior journeyed on to the next level of his existence on Sunday, September 29, 2019.
Born to Jacqueline J. Turner and Jerry Fausett, June 16, 2006.
Jericho’s beautiful soul radiated a lightness that touched most who met him, his quirky little smile was contagious and so very comforting in the depths of our deepest struggles. He had beautiful, blue eyes that sparked with such intelligence. When he looked at you, you knew he could see right through your soul.
He shared an unconditional love with so many, family, friends, his favorite nurse, Renate and godparents, Jacqueline Hadden and Faye Farnsworth.
He spent many days at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane Washington. Jericho was the first child to receive cannabis tar medically, which stopped 100+ seizures a day the same day it was given. He opened the minds of many doctors, paving the way for countless children to get the medicine that they severely need.
He could not talk yet spoke volumes if you paid attention. He could not walk yet he changed the world for so many kids, he could not play and now he’s running and laughing again. He was a gift to his Mama who was honored to raise a perfect child.
He was labeled “handicapped” though his heart was whole and we are the ones struggling to love each other how Jericho loved everything. May we all learn to share such a simple, complete love through our darkest days as he did. Amen.
