More Q & A

Q: can we bring a dessert
A: If you are planning on attending the service and would like to bring a dessert, please take it downstairs prior to the service and have it ready to serve so the helpers do not have to cut things up. THANK YOU!


Q: How about bringing our kids? ( although in any other situation I would keep them home during a memorial service, being that they're so young, in this one I am feeling like they should be there....be honest, what are your thoughts...there may be others with this question too)
A: Those of you who have children and would like to bring them, this is up to you. Please know that this service is very important and if you feel your child will be a distraction to those around you and take you from the service, then you may not want to bring them so you can enjoy it….depending on their age, they may not remember a thing but this may impact you and others seated around you for eternity…..this is our hope. Please parent appropriately.

Sticky question handled very gently! I hope and pray everyone can find a sitter as to not distract others from this special time of celebration of Jacobs life!

My thoughts and prayers are with you each day. Thank you so much for sharing sweet Jacob with the world and for showing Christs love throughout it all! Jacob will always be in my heart. Much love.

I miss Jacob though I have never met him and I pray that you feel the closeness of your family,friends and eachother as you mourn the loss yet also celebrate the blessing of your little miracle. He has blessed us all! -Love, Leah in Seattle
