balloons for Jacob.....

ballloons for jacob
We went to the cemetary at 7:00 this morning and filled balloons with helium.  started out with about 125 balloons, but probably ended up with about 100 after we "lost" a  bunch and a bunch more popped!
There were still enough for everyone at the funeral to have one, (some greedy grammies had two!)  then 1...2...3...  we all said "we love you jacob" and set them free to gently soar up into the sky.. for our precious jacob.
We are all emotionally and physically exhausted and the rest of this weekend will be spent relaxing.
thank you all for all your love, support, prayers, cards, and flowers!  You're all the best. 

for jacob
"Jacob... you will always be in my heart.... 
till we meet again..."

That was a beautiful way to remember him Viv. I DO hope you and your family can take a deep breath and relax a bit over the next few days. Easier said than done I know.
Love, Erica

It sounds like you had a wonderful ceremony to celebrate Jacob's life. Hopefully, your family can relax a little during the holiday week. Maybe a little beach time?

So so sad, I sure hope the cute young couple decide to have another baby sooner then later they are the most caring and loving parents God will bless them with a sweet little one. Never to replace Baby Jacob but a baby to help them feel complete. When you get a chance please e-mail me your address. oxox, from one Grandma to another my heart is heavy with you all~

What a wonderful way to remember baby Jacob sending all those balloons up to him. Hope you and family relax some but I know it is hard to do right now. My thoughts and prayers are still with you and family.
Luv & Hugs

You are doing the healthiest thing. To acknowledge and to never forget.

My cousin never talks about his baby boy who passed after 2 1/2 hours because of ill-developed lungs. I think it is very healthy to heal to talk about and always include Jacob's soul and presence in your lives.

God Bless..
Lydia

It was soooo hard being offline this week and away from your updates. When we did venture away from the sandunes enough to get a few bars on my phone, I was attempting to get updates from your blog. Please know that your family has been in my heart and prayers. I'm so terribly sorry for your loss. I hope you are all able to find peace in the next few months ahead. Sending you lots of hugs and prayers, my dear friend.
