    When your little brother arrived, I gained another perspective on your life. Our firsts as parents belong to your big brother. Our lasts belong to your little brother. But our chances to simply celebrate the moment belong to you. We celebrate your life, sweet middle son! Love you always to my middle son! “Mother”

    Dearest Jackie,

    I am the answering service operator you spoke to this evening when you called your medical supply company. Thank you for telling me about your dear son Jody and Thank you for inviting me to see his memorial slide show. I can tell he grew up surrounded by a loving family and that all of you stayed very close through the years. It touched my heart to see Jody and your wonderful family in pictures. I can tell you were, and are, a very special mom and that he was lucky to have you all of his days. I am so very sorry for your loss. God bless you. I will keep you in my prayers.
