My Jessie Journal:: Hi Sweet Pea, it’s daddy! It’s now been 2,128 days until I last held your hand and kissed you. WOW…feels like yesterday in so many ways.
Last weekend we attended a Celebration of Life service for a little boy named Carter. I’m sure you were part of his welcoming team. Now that you are 18 years old please be a big sister to him and make sure he has whatever he needs. I’m confident his parents and little sister will appreciate you being there for him.
Another one of our heroes, Devin, joined you recently too. Like Carter, please take good care of him too. I’m sure by now you have plenty of kids to help with. That is just a sad reality….every 7 hours a child joins you due to cancer…that just sucks!!! Cancer flat out sucks!!!
Halloween was Tuesday night down here…you loved going out with mommy and I to get candy with Shaya and JT. I loved holding your hand…that one simple thing I miss so much. No matter if we were at church…at the mall…or walking to get candy on Halloween…I could always count on feeling this little hand slip into mine.
I love this picture of us holding hands…it was from our last family photo shoot a few days after you were diagnosed. We wanted to get pictures before the chemo and meds started to impact you. I was helping you navigate some wet rocks at the beach.
Holding hands is such a wonderful feeling…you don’t have to say anything and you feel loved, special and cared for.
I miss holding your hand Jess!
