A letter to my wonderful Son ...
Dear Jacob, I am so Thankful and Blessed to have you my Son. The love and happiness you've brought to my life is beyond words. I am eternally grateful and so very proud of you. You are the Best Son a mother could ask for.
You endured a lot of horrific things, and still chose to live your life with morals, standards and values.
I remember after having four Beautiful Daughters, I had you my only Son! How Happy and Blessed I was to have You complete my life...
You have always brought me great joy! As a baby, toddler, and even your teenage years, you were always such a good boy❤
You turned out to be a great man with a wonderful heart, honor and respect, especially for women. Always our protector...
You helped so many in a lot of ways, lending a hand( you are the strongest guy I know), and a good listener. Always so handy trying to find the right way. I love how you love your one-on-one times with me, your sisters and friends. So personable and private.
Oh my precious Jacob
Oh my precious Son....
It has been a whole year today that I have not been able to hug you and hold you....
My heart is broken to say the least... it's hard to breathe, I can't imagine life without you.
and I won't!!
You are with me every day, every waking moment.
I hear you talk to me without hearing your voice, I feel your presence and your spirit. I love that you ride along with me in Big Blue, and wherever I go. Thank you for encouraging me.
Even now as I write I hear you say " Yes Mom I am here ,don't be sad ,I am more than okay!
God is real and I am with Him and to those who will listen Jesus Christ is here to set us free."
Remember when I kept telling you I thought you would be a minister, I had no idea it wouldn't be from here .
I miss you more than life Son. Oh Lord I cry out to You
You know my pain and you rescue me. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Thank you Lord for hope, knowing I will be with my son again.
Son I don't understand why you had to go, only that you are needed with Jesus to help us here find her way. I am comforted knowing you are free from pain, sadness, and sickness.
Thank you Lord For Your unconditional love, your mercy and your grace that saves me everyday.
Family and friends talk to Jacob, he is with us always.
To those who have lost children, God heal our hearts.
My precious Jacob I miss You, we all miss you every single day, and Love You to the moon and Beyond to heaven and back.... You Are My Son Shine, Love Mom
