Jack

Jack left us in the wee hours of the morning. He was asleep cuddled up next Sissy. Exactly where he wanted to be.


Jack and Sissy's engagement picture. It' funny as I brought this up I chuckled to myself that Jack will get a kick out of this picture. (he liked to read my blog, there is no accounting for taste)


Jack and Chloe the day after Christmas. Chloe won't let very many people hold her, especially if her mommy is around. She sat on Jack's lap all evening.
Day before yesterday Jack told Sissy he would be gone soon. He told her "they have come and told me everything is prepared and ready." I truly believe that.
"Through tears and trials, through fears and sorrows, through the heartache and loneliness of losing loved ones, there is assurance that life is everlasting. Our Lord and Savior is the living witness that such is so."
Thomas S. Monson
We love you Jack. God be with you until we meet again.
