LIFE

So many of you know Jake's "Oprah" story....well, we lost Willie a few days ago:( We were blessed to have him in our lives for the short time that we got to know him. Tré took it very hard the day that I told him, and that was the hardest part. After losing my Grandma last month, then Willie, and now my Dad being in the hospital, life has been a BIG pill to swallow. The hardest part is that life goes on. The daily tasks are still there. You laugh through the day, you cry, and you run errands. Life goes on...and for a few moments of your day, that sad feeling creeps up and you remember your loved one with sadness in your heart. I want to get to that point when you think of them, and it puts a smile on my face:) I know we all have stories of loss...some more than others...and I have been very blessed in that department...So today I am thankful for all of you in my life and for my faith that the loved ones that have passed, are in a better place. Willie lives on in our hearts and I pray for his family to find the strength to get through these difficult days.




I am pregnant with Jamison (whom carries Willie's last name) in this picture.

My thoughts are with Jake & all of you. Your heart does get to a point when you can think of them with laughter & a smile. it will come. But this is an important time to, to be sad, to realize what they meant to you in your life, what they taught you & what you can never forget. You can see that in the faces, you will never forget!
