Jack Letter 11 comments

A Letter to Jack: Hey Big Boy, how are things? It’s been almost two months and we still look for you and swear we hear you sometimes. Since it’s getting warm we started cleaning up the yard and found some tennis balls and a Frisbee (Dad hung the Frisbee up in the shed). Bad news…Mom filled the bird feeders and the squirrels are sneaking into the compound, but don’t worry we will figure it out. The good news is the Jack memorial project is coming along well because of how much everyone loved you. I think you would be proud.

    Your dad made me cry AGAIN this morning. There is not a doubt in my mind that they hear you when you are checking on them. People are silly, Jack. We know that you are having a great time keeping heaven safe with “squirrel free” zones. We are the ones that are hurting.
    We miss you tolerating your dad’s need to attempt to embarrass you with his silly antics, that you took in such great stride. Jack, you and I both know that you are so thankful of how much you are still loved and adored, not only by your family, but to all the people that looked forward to having their “morning cup of Jack”. You (and your dad) put a little more spring in their step to face the day in this tough world. Of course you are proud of your dad, he is keeping your memory alive with sharing tidbits that, as a child you would have thought ridiculous, but we enjoy just the same.

    Big hugs and kisses, Jack.

    What a beautiful letter to Jack, here I sit writing this and crying. The weather over here is cold rainy and not a happy day. I miss Jack, but God knows you and your family must have a big hole in your heart.

    Captain Jack, once again, I heard ‘What a Wonderful World’ yesterday. And, once again, I thought of you, teared up and sang your words, Oh Jack. I apologize for being lax in commenting on your Dad’s posts, I’ve been somewhat preoccupied. But, I’ve been thinking about you and your precious family and praying for y’all. Love and miss you, Sweetness.
