Jack's Sweet Life Celebration

Please join us to share in a celebration of J-Boogie's wonderful life.

Monday, September 28th, 2009
East Metropolitan Park, Manor, Texas

We are looking forward to sharing fellowship and memories with you after a brief service.

In Jack fashion, we will be having cupcakes, cookies and of course...whole milk. He wouldn't have it any other way.

If you need directions:
Going east on US 290 from I-35 take the FM 973 exit proceeding through Manor. After crossing the railroad tracks turn left on to Blake-Manor Road. Stay on Blake-Manor Road and the Park Entrance will be located on the right. The park entrance is about 3.5miles on the right.
When you enter the park, turn left just past the pool on your left and look for the glass building on your right.

If you get lost: Please call Richard at 512-317-2391

If you have any questions about anything else, please feel free to contact Lourdes at 512-350-7368.

Kate and Jack,

We at College Forward are devastated by this sad, sad news. We were all delighted to meet both your beautiful children Wednesday, and have cooed over photographs from our Open House, which we passed around the office yesterday.

Jack was an absolutely beautiful and utterly charming little boy, and we are all deeply saddened by his tragic and senseless death. We feel your loss profoundly, and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Lisa Fielder
and the College Forward staff

Dear Krissy, Dan and Kate,

Jack was the best little boy he could be. He could climb, jump, run, and get dirty, laugh, dance and play. He could dig, swim, yell, throw, kick and giggle. Jack was little boy from head to toe.

Jack was the best brother he could be. He could calm and comfort Kate when she needed it. He could whisper in her ear then give her a little pinch. He could love her and harass her all in the same instant. He knew how to be a brother.

Jack was the best son he could be. He introduced you to the secret of miracles. He taught you patience, understanding, devotion, loyalty and trust in a whole new way. He could frustrate his parents one minute and have them laughing till it hurt the next. He had a smile that shone from his eyes. If he was here to give you joy and love, I know that mission is complete.

Jack was the best Grandson he could be. He made his Grandmas and Grandpas burst with pride. He made his Grandmas fall totally in love with him and he made his Grandpas turn into big pushovers. With one little hug and one little kiss he could turn them into mush.

Jack was the best nephew he could be. He gave his aunts and uncles great joy. He showed them the joys of parenthood and gave them the gift of going home when the going got rough! He gave the gift of unconditional love and the opportunity to learn and grow along with him.

Jack was also my Grandnephew. He lived too far away for me to get my fill of kisses and hugs but he still could fill my heart with just a smile. I will be forever grateful for all Jack gave to Krissy and Dan and all of the others that loved him. Jack rocked!

My heart aches for you, Dan, and Kate. I know there are no words to ease your pain, but please know that we are constantly thinking about you and we will do anything we can to help you through this difficult time.

Jack was our little buddy. We loved every moment we got to spend with him. He made Duane and I so happy every time he visited us. Thank you for letting us be part of Jack's life.

Lourdes & Duane

Dear Turpins,

I am a member of the Dans work family (although he may not know me) and as a father and a husband myself, all I can say is to love each other every day and celebrate life as it is given to you. Your family is in my families thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

Cage, Dan, and Kate,
Marc and I are so sad that we won't be able to attend Jack's party today- but we are wearing our loudy, happy, colorful clothes today in Florida and will be there with you all in spirit and Dave has promised to give out lots of extra hugs on behalf of the Vernons and Hills! I will eat a cupcake and toast Jack with milk today! We are thinking of you all and sending you our love, support, sympathy, prayers, and hugs.
Laura Vernon & Marc Hill
