Dear Beverly, may God Bless you and the rest of your Family during this time. Sweet Jacob got his Pirate Party and perhaps, that can give all of you some consolation. He is a "Little Pirate" with the Angels in Heaven now. Eternal rest grant unto him and let perpetual light shine upon him. Many Prayers.
My brave little nephew, Jacob, died just before midnight...He was just 6 and a half, and battled the same kind of brain cancer as his uncle and grandma, my late husband, Joe, and his mother, Rita. Three generations of angels now gathered together in God's presence.
As some of you know, Jacob battled brain tumors since he was one; his greatest desire as a first-grader was to have his Pirate birthday party with all his family and pals. The weekend before CM Phoenix, we all met and gave him that "early" party. God bless all of you at Phoenix, who prayed with me and helped to carry me with "strength for the journey", knowing that it brought back old sorrows...
Please pray for the repose of his soul, and for the rest of our family, especially his parents John and Sandy, and his siblings, Blake and Annie.
Beverly how lucky for you to have known and been part of this precious little life. How lucky was he to have been entrusted to his parents care. Who could have loved him more? All who knew him are better for the part he played in their lives. Still our sadness at his depature hurts so.
We consider the loss of his presence, the many joys we have experienced that he was denied. Our comprehension falters.
Yet now he is eternal; he has joy in the supreme presence and care of the One who loves him beyond comprehension..... and made his wonderful smile.
