At 9:46am January 17th my sister-in-law Melissa Cook had the most beautiful little boy Jacksen ... 3 months early. He was doing good and they had him stabilized to have him airlifted off to another hospital that was able to care for a premature baby. Unfortunately things took a turn for the worse. Jacksen fought so hard but didn't make it. Melissa, Jason, Jayden and Alexa were supposed to be preparing for the newest family member to come home, not to be planning a funeral. He deserves the most beautiful celebration of life just like anyone else would. I am asking for anything to help them out. They don't need to worry about how to pay for all this as they deal with the weeks, months and years ahead that are going to be hard enough.
We will put baby Jacksen to rest on Monday January 26th . Even up till this point it has been so hard for the family. I see the deep sadness in their eyes and heartache but through it all everyone has held up as best as they could. No one deserves to go through this. We love him so much and he will forever be missed and loved till the day we see him again. We will continue to live on in his memory as we know death isn't the end but that one day we'll all meet again in heaven. We LOVE you to the moon and back. We know he's in great care, under God this is the only way we can continue to live on.
With this being said the family thanks you for all your donations. We can't thank you enough! May God bless all of you and watch over you for your kindness. Nothing is ever left unseen or unappreciated even to our anonymous donators. God knows who you are and He will bless you for your kindness.
Please continue to pray for Melissa, Jason, Jayden and Alexa as they need Gods love the most, especially in such tough times.
And to any one who prayed, donated, mourned or even just thought of the family...we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We're touched to have received so much love!
These are my footprints so perfect and small,
These tiny footprints never touched the ground at all,
Not one tiny footprint, for now I have wings,
These tiny footprints were meant for other things,
You will hear my tiny footprints in the patter of the rain,
Gentle drops like angels tears from joy and not from pain,
You will see my tiny footprint in each butterfly's lazy dance,
I'll let you know I'm with you if you just give me the chance,
You will see my tiny footprints in the rustling of the leaves,
I'll whisper names into the wind, and call each one that grieves,
Most of all these tiny footprints, are found on Mommy and Daddy's hearts,
For even though I'm gone now, we'll never truly part.
