You would be proud of your Mom and Dad. Mama had her surgery and is healing very well. She''s been walking with your Grandmother and Great Grandmother and Great Aunt KIm. She''s trying to get strong and healthy.
We miss you!
I can''t believe you''ve been gone a month. We all miss you so much. Your Mom and Dad are going to be ok. They''re such strong people and they have such strong faith in our Lord. I wanted to go today to visit you and Big Daddy, but I have a terrible cold. You live on in my heart though!
I picture Little Jack in the Cherub Choir in heaven making a "joyful" noise!--Because we all know that his familys have such lovely voices!
His short life has brought us a greater understanding of what love and family are all about. Thank you, God for such a wonderful gift--even if we didn''t get to have him long.
Miranda, Casey and family, We are all so sorry to hear of the loss of "Little Jack". Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. It was a pleasure for us to have gotten the chance to meet him. God Bless. Love, all the nurses at Kennestone NICU
I think I will forever wish I had more time with you--more time when you were here, less time wishing i wasn''t so sickly and fearing getting you sick... I just didn''t want to get you sick. I wish I knew you more---knew you better. I am glad for those that spent so much time with you---guess just wish I was one of them. So sorry I wasn''t there more for you--I thought about and still think about you all the time. Lots of love to you little man above.
Your Uncle Shawn thinks you are with Janie---I think I agree with him. He told me he thinks she is looking out for you until your parents get there... he misses you too--very, very much.
I just want you to know I love you---and have loved you since your first day here, overwhelmingly so actually. and I know God loves you even more...and now you are happy and healthy. Your Uncle Shawn was soo proud of you---so proud. He got to see you last night and oh, he just went on and on about his love for you. You have brought me closer to the one you are now with, and for that my dear nephew, you are the strongest and most powerful boy I know...you just touched so many...
Casey,Miranda,Harry and Marti,
We are so sorry for the death of your baby. You have been in our prayers since Jackson was born.
We don''t always understand what God is doing, but he has a plan for each one of us. This is another reason to look forward to Heaven one day to be with him again.
God bless you in the days to come.
The Bloodworth''s and Weaver''s
We''ll never forget your short time with us. I don''t know of many people who can accomplish all of God''s "jobs" for them in 5 short weeks. I know that you touched thousands of people in your short time here. You brought your closest family closer to God and through your life many were able to witness God''s power and love. I''m grateful for every minute we had together. I''ll see you in Heaven--I know you''ll be hanging out with Great Granddaddy Cy --he''ll be showing you all the best fishing holes up there!
We love you Jack! I will always cherish the days you spent with us, though I wish there could have been many more. I never knew such a tiny little guy could have such an impact on so many people. May you rest with a peace you couldn''t find here on Earth. Your fighting spirit will live on in the many hearts you have touched and you will never be forgotten!
We have been silently watching and praying for you guys and little Jackson ever since we heard he was born.
Us and our church have been praying for this whole situation.
I just figured it couldn''t hurt to know that you are getting more and more prayers.
Just checking in to say hello, glad i got to spend time with you guys today, and to say to hang in there. To everyone--Jack has still not pee''d---he needs to pee. He has to pee. He needs all of our prayers---and those of others. I read this probably about every hour, looking for updates and whatnot, and know many of you do too. I know we are all in the loop and constantly ask everyone to pray for Jack. I am just asking, as little Jack''s proud Aunt, that everyone reach out to everyone you know today, now if you can, and ask everyone you can to please pray for this to happen, and for them to pass the word like never before. God bless you all---especially Jack.
Jack we pray constantly for you and your parents. We love you so! I dreamed last night that God was telling me that we should give you to him for the rest of your life. We are here to love you and care for you, but that you are His! So I do give you to Him and I promise to do my part to love you and teach you God''s ways!
We are lifting you and Jackson in prayer and you are in our thoughts throughout the day and night.
Father, I pray "little by little" that Jackson will improve and grow stronger each day. You created and gave life to this precious little boy and we are asking you if it be your will that his kidneys would start working. Give him strength to fight. May Casey and Miranda sense and feel your loving arms around them today. Give them strength and courage as they make this journey day by day. We ask this in your name! Amen
Dear Miranda & Casey,
I swear that it is fate that I stumbled upon your website. I was at www.picturelilyphotography.com website and saw your link on the blog. I recognized his name and birthdate immediately. My son was born on October 23 at Kennestone Hospital. Right after delivery they had to rush him to the NICU because he had swallowed fluid during birth. He then had to spend his first 8 days of life hooked up to oxygen, a feeding tube and IV. We would visit him about 3 times a day. Everytime we came we walked past Jack''s room. When I saw his weight in the window it broke my heart. I want you to know that my husband and I have been thinking about you everyday. When I finally got to take my son home I remember walking past his room and saying a prayer for him and the long road ahead of him. He is always in my thoughts. Last year on October 28th I delivered my son 12 weeks early. He was stillborn due to a placental abruption. I remember holding him and he was only 2 lbs 8oz. So tiny but so precious. I feel a very strong connection to your son''s condition. Just know that God doesn''t give you more than you can handle and he does answer your prayers. He answered mine when my son Jonas was born. You will be in my prayers and I will continue to check on baby Jack''s progress. Best wishes.
Lindsey, Brian and Jonas Turner
Our thoughts and prayers are definitely with you- prayer got us through it all. My husband and I brought Easton, our son, home in April of this yr. He was a 25-wk''er, 1lb 4oz, just as my aunt says below, born last Nov 27th. All the memories flow back seeing the pics of you holding for the first time. It is hard to look back on those times for us, but it seems like a blur once you get that little guy home! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and we have a myspace acct with Easton''s pics (www.myspace.com/jana2pc) of how he''s changed over the last yr. If you need a support group, feel free to contact us anytime.
I just want you to know my thoughts & prayers are with you. My nephew & his wife Jana had a 1lb 4oz baby on Nov. 27th of 2006. Easton will be 1 in 13 days. He now weighs 11lb 12oz. and has 2 teeth. I know God will be with him & your family.Just know you & your family are in my prayers & little Jackson is on our church prayer chain.
God Bless you all,
