Happy Birthday Jackie Joo

Happy Birthday baby boy! We miss you so much. We feel you near even though we can't see you we know that you are never far from our hearts. How grateful we are for the promise of the Temple Covenants we made and that we are not just a family, we are an ETERNAL family. You have touched so many people in the short time you were able live on the Earth. There isn't anything I wouldn't give to have getting into mischief, following Corbin around, giving us sweet hugs and slobbery kisses and laughing while throwing your head back. You are so amazing and we long for the day that you will return to us. We know we'll see you again and we cling to that promise.

This year for Jack's 2nd birthday we had a little Memorial birthday party at the Cemetery. We were surrounded by family and friends and sent blue balloons up to Heaven.


This year for Jack's birthday we thought it would be nice to extend the challenge to everyone that knew Jack, knew of Jack or anyone that just reads our blog to do some random act of kindness for someone. This can be anything from smiling at someone, giving a compliment or even reading an extra story to your children. You don't have to tell anyone what you have done, but just leave us a comment letting us know that you participated. Maybe by helping someone feel a little more special Jack can touch a few more people.

I just linked to your blog through Anna's, and I am balling, inspired, and heartbroken all at the same time. I'm not sure if you remember me from MSU, I was roommates with Anna. Of course I will spread an act of kindness today, and give my own little boy more love and attention for the sweet spirit he is! Your story has really touched me, and your faith and testimony as well.
