Papa Jack

As many of you may know my father was killed last Tuesday June 9, 2009. It is a very hard time in my life but Emmie is helping in ways that I can't even describe. She makes me get out of bed in the morning and see a little piece of God's goodness everyday. I have posted the one of the only pictures I will ever had of these two together but I thank God that my dad got to know her and she for a short time knew him. He loved her and was so excited about her...I am going to have a big job describing him to her. Emmie has gotten off of her routine because of all the people and all the commotion but luckily her Pops and GG were her to give her a constant. Thank you to you both for helping us in such an awful time. Please pray for my mother, Cody, and I that we can endeavor to keep Papa Jack alive for my little girl who he loved.


  1. Sis,

    You will always be in my prayers.

  2. As you process this terrible loss, you will be flooded with many wonderful good memories. These will stay in your mind and heart. You will be able to share everyone of them with Emmie. When you do something that reminds you of him or time with him, just share it with Emmie. She will love all of the wonderful story telling you will do. Prayers and love continued for you all. Just take each moment and what it brings. In both joy and sadness just know God is loving and close. I love you all! Your Texas Mom
