1 wk later

It's hard to belive that 1 week has passed since Baby Jacks funeral. I remember the night before the funeral, it may sound weird but I was kinda excited. Excited to see him one more time and Celebrate his short life with friends and family around. While it was a hard place to be emotionally, we got to sing songs with him, pray with him, and lay him to rest physically, yet live with him spiritually. That Monday seem to go so fast, it was one of those days that I wanted to last forever, that night after everyone left, we thought, WOW! what a day!

We're so blessed to have the support that we have had through this journey. The support of friends and family is overwhelming. We appreciate all the thoughts, prayers, cards, flowers, lunchs, and visits that we've recieved. We've decided to purchase new playground equipment for the parks in Kiron and Schleswig in memory of Baby Jack.


  1. That is such a great idea about the playground equipment! What a great way for Jack to be remembered!

  2. What a great idea with the playground equipment. I know that Greg really enjoys looking back at Olivia's funeral. Of course we would have wanted things to turn out differently but since it did not, we look back and enjoy what we were able to do. I think since it was one of the few things we could have done to honor her short life, he is glad we did it and proud of his little girl.

  3. What a great memorial idea!
    Thinking of you all and keeping you in our prayers.

  4. Your page is so moving and amazing. Thank you for putting it up so that people will know about the condition that affected little Jack. The playground equipment is such an awesome idea so that baby Jack will always be remembered and other little kids can have fun on the equipment thanks to him! Your whole family is very brave and are definitely a great example of how to face something hard in such great spirits and faith! I cannot imagine how hard it was for all of you. Jack's obituary touched every person's heart that read it and I'm sure brought tears to each person's eyes.

  5. I know what you mean about being excited to see him. I felt the same about Carleigh. I was ready to hold her again!
