This Week





This week is the birthday of Jake's seven years in heaven. On August 26th, 2001 Jake went to heaven.

I was so excited to get pictures in the mail of the playground that is dedicated to Jake. He loved being at church and thought of it as his second home. This playground is located at our old church in Albuquerque, NM. He loved playing in the children's area at our church. The weekend after he died, all the nursery workers went barefooted to honor him. He ALWAYS took off his shoes.

I know how much his life impacted me and so many others. It is great to have a playground in honor of him. He deserves it!
