Jake Brewer memorial education fund
"I lost part of my heart and the father of my sweet babies. I don't have to tell most of you how wonderful he was. It was self-evident. His life was his testimony, and it was powerful and tender and fierce, with an ever-present twinkle in the eye. I will miss him forever, even more than I can know right now...There was no thought too optimistic for Jake, so take it and run with it. I will strive and pray not to feel I was cheated of many years with him, but cherish the gift of the years I had. In a life where nothing is guaranteed, Jake made the absolute, ever-lovin' most of his time with all of us. [The photo on this post] is a family picture we took a couple weeks ago. It was taken because Jake, as always, was ready with a camera and his immense talent. All four members of our little, growing family are in it. I can never be without him because these babies are half him."
Those of us who love Jake want to help ensure that Mary Katharine and the family have everything they need -- now and (especially) in the future. Please contribute to help provide for their childrens' education as they grow up. These funds may also be used to advance ideas about which Jake was passionate. Finally, Mary Katharine has asked that people consider donating to a cause very close to their hearts: The Travis Manion Foundation, which supports families of fallen US servicemen, at www.TravisManion.org.
God bless you.
As you continue to support Jake's family here, please also keep the Travis Manion Foundation (TravisManion.org) in your thoughts. This wonderful organization assists our nation's veterans and the families of the fallen.
Your ongoing support is helping to guarantee that Jake and Mary Katharine's children will be fully provided for as they grow up, go to school, and pursue their passions. We are deeply moved and humbled. Again, thank you and God bless.
Dear beautiful woman of God Mary Katherine - Jer. 29:11 is a verse l pray will bring you comfort. I am sure you know of it. You have the prayers of the entire Fox Nation and everyone that has ever seen your gorgeous smile and known your family. Big HUGS in Jesus
MY CONDOLENCES TO MARY KATHARINE, AND A POEM THAT MIGHT HELP COMFORT YOU IN THE DAYS AHEAD: DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP BY MARY ELIZABETH FRYE ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.
From one Bulldawg to another, my heart is heavy with sadness over your and your little one's loss. Prayers all over this part of the country will be offered for God to offer the strength you need to move forward in your life and continue to be the awesome Dawg that you are. I know your husband will always live on in your heart and in the hearts of all that knew him.
I am so sick to hear of this. My prayers for you, Mary Katharine, and your little Georgia and your other child on the way. I will be praying for you and yours for a long time. I am glad that I can make donations to this and to the Travis Manion Foundation in Jake's honor.
Sorry on your loss. But i agree with above and also add the fact that if people cared,they would truly check out other peoples go fund me accounts of people who also need help,but who arebt in spotlight and dont get many donations because of it. Please help others too
I am sorry for your loss. It must be heartbreaking while still carrying your child. I was shocked at the amount of money raised, especially when I compared it to other similar memorial pages. It appears that your family has touched many people's hearts. Perhaps when they are done here they can go look at some of the other less fortunate ones and extend their generosity in your husbands name - he was a charitable person from all that I have read. Best of wishes to you and your little ones.
My heart goes out to you, Mary Katherine, and to your daughter. As a young widower, I know a little of what your upcoming days, months and years may be like. You may not read this anytime soon, if at all, but if you do, I pray that you will let Jesus heal your heart in His time, for He is faithful to His promises, though we may not understand. I also pray that you allow your strength and faith to remain as you go through this very difficult season, and that your weakness will be supported by those God has sent into your life. Jake will live on through you, your heart, your memories, and your children.
