9 Years Old

How quickly things change in a year. From our family gathered around him on his 8th birthday...

to us missing him so much on his 9th birthday.
My sweet, sweet boy. We were blessed by your birth 9 years ago. You made us different people in your short, but full, 8 years of life.
We love you and miss you so, so much. Happy first birthday in Heaven, Jacob.

Feel free to follow us on Jacob's Ladder page on Facebook for random acts of kindness stories on his birthday. We ask everyone who knows of him to do one small act of kindness today in his memory. Let's sprinkle the world with some goodness in honor of this sweet soul. 


  1. Oh Elizabeth, I don't know what to say, except that you were blessed with a not of this world angel. I can see it and feel it in his eyes. Bless you and your whole family, and know that you are loved.

    1. Thank you so much, and I completely agree - the eyes are the window to the soul and he was a wise, sweet soul.
