jay baer

two years ago today my family lost an amazing soul.

my cousin in law jill... lost her one true love.  she lost the man whom should have fathered her children.  she was forced to say good bye to the one she wished to grow old with, the one she should still be kissing at night.  jill lost her husband, she is missing her best friend right this very moment.  

my aunt and uncle...lost their first born child.  the child whom claimed them as parents first and was given the same name as his beloved father.  they lost their precious son.  they were forced to let go to the one they created, the one they still love so much.  their son has passed their hearts forever broken.  

my cousins michael and lucas...they lost their big brother. they are holding onto childhood memories of the past that seem like yesterday.  my cousins will never shake the loss of their sibling.  

family and friends...some are missing their nephew and godchild, while others are missing their cousin. we have small ones that miss their uncle and godfather.  we have lost our loyal friend and respected coworker. 

my cousin jay lost an admirable battle to cancer at a very young age.  every ones lives were much fuller just knowing jay and he will be forever missed.  his smile was contagious and his words genuine. he will forever be an inspiration to us all he left behind.

i can't even begin to wrap my brain around the loss of one of my children or being forever detached from my husband.  how lonely it must feel to lose a parent or sibling.  i am forever amazed that his closets loved ones are even able to get out of bed each  morning.  my heart is heavy thinking of them on this day.

we love and miss you.  you will never be forgotten.
