For Jackson...

Courage comes in many sizes...
Minutes ago I learned of the passing of young Jackson Baldwin, a local ten year old boy who bravely fought his own war against cancer.

It would be hard to read the post at the above link with a dry eye.  It is an uplifting story and at the same time very sad.  I think, though, that it can truly be said that the world is a better place having had Jackson Brown as a part of it while he lived.

I am definately praying for his parents as they go through the numbing (what a blessing time that is) days and as the harsh reality sets in, which is of course when everyone else's lives go back to "normal" and you're left to try to figure out what you're supposed to do next.

Thank you for sharing this precious boy. I wish so much that no other parent had to know this horrible pain. One day God will answer my and so many other bereaved cancer parents prayers and will end childhood cancer.

One day............

God Bless

That was so very moving Dona,  I can hardly see though my tears. The way his Dad explained Heaven to Jackson was so beautiful.  God Bless that dear little boy.
