Party atTIrE

Our intention for tomorrow's event is to make it a true representation of Jack's bright, loving spirit. When looking in your closet, deciding what would be appropriate for Jack's celebration, please ask yourself these questions: What would Jack pick out for me? What would sweet Jack like for me to wear?

If there was ever an occassion to wear your brightest, funniest tie or that too loud, over-the-top dress THIS IS IT! Go for it. You will be making Jack proud!

I am so sorry for your loss, loosing a child as beautiful as Jack must be so difficult for the both of you. Our prayers are with you Dan, your wife and little girl.
Many prayers and thoughts are sent from many of us still in Oak Harbor.

Kristen and Dan, I REALLY wanted to be there to celebrate with you... had my bright dress picked out and everything, but unfortunately I'm just too sick to go out today. Please let me know if we can go to lunch or have a playdate with Miss Kate. You're constantly in my thoughts...

Dan and Kristin,

We're friends of Liz and Tony.
Our hearts are broken for you and your family. We've just read your words and looked at the beautiful pictures of Jack and Kate. Words can't possibly tell you how sorry we are for your loss. We live in Oregon so couldn't be there today, but we certainly send you prayers and strength for the days ahead.

Bless Your Family,
Mike and Barb Porter

Kristin,
I cannot find the words to express the sorrow I feel. Though I never met Jack, I felt I knew him through the wonderful stories you told us at LEAPS. You and your family are in my prayers. I hope you find comfort knowing that Jack is in the loving arms of Jesus.
God Bless,
Kathy Cavin
