I stopped by the cemetary today. I did my usual things...said "hi" to Jake, picked weeds from his garden, spun the cross I hung in the tree and continued to look for answers. While I sat and "talked" to Jake, I couldn't help feeling that I shouldn't have to go to a cemetary to visit my nephew. I sat and cried while looking at his face, the whole time wondering where Jake would be today. We all know, as I also do, that Jacob was one incredible kid. He could accomplish anything he set his mind to, even if it didn't always turn out so gracefully. Jake always had a way of "making things happen"...and good or bad, he ALWAYS had fun. It breaks my heart to think of all the things he has, and will, miss out on. I know he's up in Heaven watching, but I wish he was here going through it with us.
Rest in Peace Jacob Close
