Rest in peace dear Jack...


tears that flow upon the face


dampening black and white fluff-

a cow squeezed heartily

as the boy clings desperately to life.

With a final kiss and caress on the cheek

wings take flight toward the Heavenly gates.

Our supreme being clutching your hand

With peacefulness and tenderness

guiding you to your ultimate resting place.

Your gentle face toward the light

leaving a hole in our hearts.

Rest in peace dear Jack,

Rest in peace…

Our hearts are broken, Tracy. It is such a burden to carry the pain when a child dies. I can only think of Jack's vibrant spirit flying as freely as a bird and without the unbearable pain which he has suffered from over the past week. Your words bring some comfort to my soul. Thank you. Thank you for embracing this family. Thank you for embracing this boy.

Hugs and love,
Deb

I don't know what to say...I cry so when little ones suffer and I rejoice, knowing he isn't sick anymore....that he is walking and talking with Jesus.
Your sweetness is such a blessing.

LV said...

I have a hard time with death. When it is a child, it is worse. The only consolation is that the good Lord needed another little angel to love. He was certainly a cute little fellow. My heart goes out to his family.

My daughter walked in and saw this post over my shoulder. We are praying for the family. So difficult even if we do know where he is...

Blessings, Debbie

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Dearest Tracy, I cry tears of sorrow for the loss, but surely God holds him close to His heart. I have no doubt that Jack has angelic duties in heaven and he will help his family while they live here on earth.

I will pray for his family and everyone who loves him.

There are no words to say that will ease the pain of the loss of a child and one so young but the lord can lift the broken heart. I pray for the family that the lord will lift their spirits and give them peace. Jack is now walking with Jesus and seeing things that are to awesome for words.
