With a saddened heart I have to say that my beloved Jake passed away a few weeks ago. He was taken too soon from us for he was only nine. But those nine years he lived like a proud prince, He touched so many people and so many people loved him. And he knew it. I can take comfort knowing that he didn't suffer. Actually was healthy as could be. We think his heart just couldn't keep up with his body or he had a stroke. He was fine one minute and the next just went limp and fell off the couch. Within five minutes he was gone. Never felt more helpless in my life. But he was surrounded by his loved ones and I know he knew that. We just comforted him and told him how much we loved him. Then a lot of tears fallowed for days. Couldn't believe how much our hearts hurt. My fourteen year old son was crushed. I felt so bad for his pain and I knew there was nothing I could do but let him go through the grieving process. He is doing better now. And my strong husband was brought down to his knees. He didn't say much for days and I knew I couldn't do anything for him but listen and hold him. I'm still grieving but in the acceptance stage. Thank you all for all the prayers support and flowers. We know Jake is up there in Heaven guarding the gates. What a welcoming thought that maybe Jake will be standing at the gates of Heaven waiting on us. RIP Jake. We will always love you my sweet sweet boy.
