Happy Birthday Jacko!

Jack, Jacko, Jackie.  It's hard to believe you are 9 today!  We are so lucky to have you in our family.  You complete us! You can be a ham and a jokester one minute and a little professor - wise beyond your years - the next.  Sad times have been made lighter with you in our lives, and happy times made even more joyful.

Thank you for bringing us laughter.
Thank you for being a loving brother.
Thank you for being willing to try most anything.
Thank you for keeping us on our toes with your skills as a negotiator.
Thank you for still wanting to give us hugs in public.
Thank you for being such a great son!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Caitlyn

Caitlyn. Sweet, caring, smart, strong, courageous.

The year since your 10th birthday has been one that we never would have imagined. You have had to grow up too soon. You have had to endure pain that no child should have to suffer. But despite that, you have retained that sparkle that is you. That we love. That we need in our lives.

We thank God for you, for your health, for your laughter, and for your desire to live life without regrets.

You are amazing. You are 11. You are our Caitlyn.
