|Let the memory of Jacob be with us forever|
"Happy Heavenly Birthday Jacob!
Cheers to you up there with Jesus, I'm sure the celebration is epic!
Love and miss you so very much!
"Thinking of you today and remembering the day your Mama decided to let me meet you. I remember an adorable innocent 9 year old, blondest toe head with the biggest blue eyes I'd ever seen. I remember you hanging on to your Mom rolling up Nemo Rd on the back of her Harley. That smile...oh man, you could not scrub that grin off your face that day. Thank you Jacob for sharing the precious gift of time with me. Peace and love to you and your loved ones today and always."
"I feel asleep in the daylight and I didn't even know I was going to. You were there in the light of the room and you kissed my face and hugged me so much. I pulled away from you to see your face and I said Jacob it is really you. You said mom I am ok and I love you and I am always here. Kylea was right there then and he reached over and grabbed her so excited and he hugged her and he looked at me and said tell my sissy everything is alright. I startled awake and I could feel him in the room. I looked at the TV and the show I was starting to watch had only been on 5 minutes. It was real and I can still feel his hugs and it was so needed. I wanted to sure because I know so many worry if I am ok. I am and I get more ok everyday. More importantly Jake is ok. This is what all Mom's need to know. Have to know. We are moved out of our house and I have worried so much if it was the right thing to do. I want to think so. I love you Son. I love you."
"I have woke everyday this week fresh from a dream about you. Can't help but to think that it is your way of letting me know your ok. I miss you so much and have been a little overwhelmed with grief this week. But Dad, Kylea, Isaiah, and I have laughed with Kateycakes all week. She brings your stories alive with such a familiarity that it almost feels like you are telling them to us yourself. Your bro's Tyler came home from Denver, Johnny flew home, and Dro watches over us day to day God you are so loved!!! I have been singing this little light of mine to Isaiah all week. He cracks up every time. Keep your little light shining brightly Bubba so I can feel that you are ok. I am trying hard to step out and look up. Doing a pretty good job too. We are making plans and daring to dream a little without feeling pain. Trying hard to fill up this huge whole in my heart with love and forgiveness to all. That's your way. I love you with all my heart and soul!! Moms."
"Jacob, you are missed today and everyday. Your light so bright. Wrap your arms around your Mama and your Papa and your Sissy. Let them know you are near, at peace and riding the wave of Heaven. Love and miss you sweet boy. Auntie Christina."
"Saturday night we went to Merricks Dance Recital, which was so well done. Jacob instantly was remembered in this recital because it was "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory." Oh my gosh he loved that movie. Over and over he would come to one of us and say "I got the ticket, I got the golden ticket" Jacob was in our thoughts and brought tears to our eyes that night just remembering his excitement for that movie."
"My favorite memories of Jacob always involve laughter and not just the politically correct laughter, but the folded over gut wrenching, tears in corners of eyes sort of laughter. The memory I would like to share today is from Koen's 6th birthday and it was as always, a day filled with laughter. I have shared a pic of Jacob and the boys from that day. He made the little's day by showing and he always showed up for those two boys. The way he rolled into the camp ground that day and loved on those boys melted my heart. It brings tears to my heart now thinking of it. He was always sincere and gracious with his compliments and his love, something that I try everyday to imitate. I miss and love you so much Jacob!"
"I have a million memories, but two that seem to come to mind all of the time. The first being the night that he called me when he was with his parents to tell me that he and my daughter would make aesthetically perfect children, and the second, the day he came into his home with his hands clasped like a gun and acted like James Bond, hiding behind the sofa and tables, while humming the theme music to 007. It makes me laugh every time I think about it."
"Recently remembering how Jake taught the Smith boys to jump off the bunk beds into a pile of sleeping bags and the skate board parks we visited on that trip to Denver."
Have a suggestion for us?
