Thank you Sisters for all the beautiful cards you've taken the time to send by snail mail. They have helped lift our spirits and mean so much. They will be preserved in Jake's Memory Book.

And for all of you who have clicked on my left sidebar at the top of the page to sign Jake's online Obituary Guest Book. I thank you so much. My son Buddy has paid to keep the guest book online for a full year so many can sign the book and even post photos and then he plans to order it in a hardbound book for me. I will treasure the book and your comments so very much.
I have received over 350 comments since the death of my son and for me to tell you Thank You would be just such a gross inadequacy and understatement of what they have meant to us. Most of you have not lost a child and for that I am so thankful because I have never known this level of pain in my life but you have cried with me, prayed for us, written sweet words of hope, encouragement and support and you've patiently read my blogs which were probably so depressing to many. Some of you have lost your own child and you have felt my pain as you did your own and you've helped me see what helped heal you.
I've wanted to visit all of you to give you a personal thank you and a virtual hug, but I'm afraid I have lost track of who I've visited and who I haven't as some days I've begun gung ho and have lost all my steam before the day was half over. I want to know each of you and see your bloggy to know what you're up to. Please write me again!!
I see I have made some new friends on my list of followers and I am so delighted and hope you won't give up on me. I have been known to have a decently funny or informative post from time to time and I'm sure I'll get on back to myself before too long.
You see my faith is great. I know Jesus and I know my boy lives with Him so I cannot stay down for too long. I'll be changed and all our lives will be changed but I will be a stronger person and a more loving person because my son Jake taught me that and he would expect nothing less.
I love you all, Mollye
and so does my Punkin Darlin!
