A Note From Gramma

"Hey Jacob --- hey baby, are you OK?"

I always would be saying these words as I held my little grandson. (drove everyone crazy) But now I have my answer. He is OK and in the arms of Jesus.
We miss Jacob terribly but he was our witness of God’s Glory and Jesus' Resurrection. God sent us a witness in Jacob. He touched our lives for a short journey and we see God’s glory as he visited us here on earth. He touches our hearts and souls. God has given us this miracle so we can grow stronger and to bless us all with a burning desire to give glory to God through Jesus Christ.

Jacob is a gift from God. Let us rejoice and be glad.

I am so thankful you were chosen to have this little witness warrior of heaven bless your lives each and every one of his 139 days minus 34 minutes. This little guy was loved by the most amazing family, and he only knew pure love. Gods great Glory is all over your family. Being a gramma myself, my heart hurts for you. My life is touched forever by your grandson Jacob. I miss him too.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Jacob I thought I'd leave a note for you also! I'm sorry I never did it sooner! Wow what an amazing little baby you are! I have been following your story for quite awhile and you are amazing! You see I know that you are a miracle baby because I had a brother just like you born with the same thing you had but he went back to heaven after 52 hours. I have been working on a project for you and now I am kicking myself because I never finished it in time for you to see it! Beautiful baby Jacob you have touched and changed the lives of so many people! Words can't begin to describe the sadness and pain I have felt for you since saturday. I ache for you to have just one more day with your family, one more moment. You are an amazing little boy and you and your family are so lucky to have eachother! I don't know really what I'm writing as stuff just is rambling out of my mouth and my eyes are filled with tears. I love you Jacob and wish I had the chance to meet you on this earth! I have a friend who got her wings too.. CAn you guys keep an eye on each other? Her name is Addi! I love you Jacob! Keep watching over your family they need you right now! Oh and one more thing.. Go spread your beautiful wings! Fly baby you are free!!


Tell your mom and dad to email me when they get a chance when everything has calmed down so I can send them the gift I have for you!

He certainly was an AMAZING reminder of God's glory! I wish I had words that would make this even a little less unbearable, but having been through the loss of a child twice myself I know that there is NOTHING that can take away any of this pain.

Jacob was an amazing gift from the Lord! Though I never met him, my heart aches deeply knowing I will not get to click on this blog and here "his" words. What we can do is greive with Hope! We know this is NOT the end!

God said "Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted." Know that even in the awful moments you are never alone. Please also know that when you are too weary to pray for yourselves I will be standing in the gap for you!

Much Love,

Jacob is now more than OK! What a blessing to have this knowledge! It is my prayer that God will give your family the grace and peace to feel more than OK as well, resting in the knowledge that no one could care for your little guy better than He!

I will be praying for all of you and thinking of you often! God Bless You!

He has made me rethink my walk with Christ and now I am trying to become a better Christian. Thanks to your family for sharing him with us!
