hey jako, its been awile since i wrote to you. so many things have been happening lately. i believe its the Holy Comforter that Jesus sent us. My heart is still shattered but the pain and emptiness,for the most part is finally doable. The Holy Spirit directs me to passages that help me to start to understand, not know, but to at least open my heart to a deeper understanding of what our Lord wants and expects of us. anyway, i would like to copy down a verse from the bible to you. Its 1 Corinthians cp 13,verse 4-8. Love is patient,love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,does not act unbecomingly;it does not seek its own, is not provoked,does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness,but rejoices with the truth; bears all things believes all things,hopes all things,endures all things. Love never fails. Jake,you showed me what true love is when you married your wife. You knew by heart these scriptures. You tried so many times and in so many ways to show us the true meaning of love. You found it with your wife. im over twice your age, but im starting to see the true meaning, and actually apply it to my everyday life. Its a long process, but for you, like most things in life,came naturally to you. I hope to forever keep learning from your beautiful social graces. You are a great teacher jake. Im so very blessed to have been your mom and your friend. hey, we did the angel tree for you like i promised i would. we picked 3 kids. 3yr to 14yrs. All i can say jake, it was a blast. And i'll continue it for you till God calls me home. Thank you for filling my empty heart with the Christmas spirit this season. Your gifts are never ending. I love you more than anyone could imagine and i always will kiddo. Sleep well my youngest man, till we meet up again. All my love, mom.

hey jake, we seem to keep meeting in the early morning hours. i remember you also had a hard time sleeping all nite. if you were here,we could take a ride somewhere and grab me a coffee. the snows trying to melt, but its still pretty,roads are a bit icy, but you always drove safe with me.your favorite kind of nite matt,melissa and ur name sake actually came to visit me while doing my chemo. they stayed,zury got to eat lunch with his 'me-ma'. thats what hes been calling me for awhile now. you'd be so proud of him,jake. hes as sweet as you. he has the biggest heart for sharing at only 1 1/2yr old. just like his uncle jake. anyway, i kinda wanted to talk to our heavenly Father tonite. hope you dont mind sharing ur mom. i know you won't. i just wanted to thank Him for blessing me with 4 beautiful baby boys. you boys were a handful. and im aware of all the mistakes i made raising you kids.i could of been a much better mom to you. but i did the best i could, with what i had. all 4 of you boys grew up to be the most honest,kind hearted and loving men. three of you are the dads to my favorite grandkids. without our loving God, i never would of been able to raise such fine men. i give Him all the glory,patience(with me),guidence,His most beautiful hedge of protection of us,and most of all,our heavenly Father giving us His Son to take on all our sins,and to give each of us eternal life, for those that believe. without God being in my life while raising you boys, i fear all that could of happened. but He was there, and still is in our lives. and we can never ever thank Him enough for what Hes given to us. so jake, this message is to you and our most Holiest of Fathers. i love you both. you both have my heart and my heavenly Father holds my soul in the cup of His Hand. Amen. sweetest of dreams my jako,rest well til we meet up again. i love you kiddo.

hey kiddo,its me again. came across some cute pics of you the other day. one in particular has you and matt sitting on santas lap,both of you guys wearing your ninja turtle sweaters. you must of been about 2yr and matt 4yr old. im going to ask melissa how to get them on your book here. theres quite a few pics i want added for our memories later. im taking melissa and zury into town tmaro to get pics with santa and crash, the reindeer. wonder what he did to get that name,huh? wishing you could be with us. bet you'd get on crash, just for the pic! i came across a beautiful poem. im going to put it on here, for others who have kids in heaven. its old, like here goes....TO all Parents who believe: I'll lend you, for a little time a child of mine, he said. For you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he's dead. It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three. But will you, till i call him back, take care of him for me? He'll bring his charms to gladden you,and should his stay be brief...You'll have his lovely memories as solace to your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return. But there are lessons taught down there i want this child to learn. I've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true. And from the throngs that crowd lifes lanes... I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love,nor think the labor vain, nor hate when i come to call to take him back again? Answer: I fancied that i heard them say,"Dear Lord Thy Will be Done", for all the joy Thy child shall bring,the risk of grief will run. We'll shelter him with tenderness,we'll love him while we may, and for the happiness we've known,forever grateful stay. But should the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned, we'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.....oh my sweetest jako, how i miss holding you. but soon we'll be together for eternity. thats our Lords promise, sleep well jake,mom loves you bunches.

Hey Jake, been thinking about you alot lately. holidays, i guess.Today i was reminded of you again...taken back to a special time.. and as i thought of you,a certain sort of saddness filled my heart. even though the memories i have are beautiful and thinking back on them fills my heart with joy,my eyes also swell with tears because we are apart, and your mama misses you so very much. sleep well my son, till i see you again. love you always and more.

hey sweet jako,well winter is officially here. snow on the deck that wont melt is a good indication that its here for awhile. i pass by Rons honda almost everytime im in town. i still look for ur ride on the side of the building. guess i always will. thats a mom for i stopped in there to see everyone back in march or april. it was harder than i thought it would be. hard not seeing you behind the counter with ur big smile and 'hey mama, whats up? come give me a hug.' man jako, you are missed beyond mere words can express. some people have actually said im greiving to long. i just tell them i'll miss you until the day God takes me home to be with you and Him. we were and still are the best of friends. even for a mom and son, we had an awesome friendship. iguess maybe what i miss the most is the talks we had. we talked about everything and everybody. we had so many laughs and such great memories. these are things that no one can ever take away, change,or dismiss. its kinda sad that even close family members couldnt understand our close friendship and enjoy it with us. you with this terminal disease and me with stage 4, terminal breast cancer. what a pair we made! i guess they were afraid they'd have to join our elete group. oh how sad,how much they missed out with you and now how much their missing out on time with me. we both have strong faith. we know the plans that Our Father in heaven has for us. we know that we only see the back side of the beautiful tapestry that God has created for those that believe in HIS SON. when we get to your side, we'l then be allowed to see the master beauty of that tapestry. we just need to do our best,follow the 10 commandments,and beleve that Jesus died and rose again to give us eternal life. well sweet boy, its late, gotta fix dinner. sweet dreams son, rest easy. we love and miss you lots kiddo. love you, mom.
