A huge, gigantic, enormous THANK YOU!

I wanted to post this as a separate entry, because these awesome kids deserve it!!  Here's the whole story!  After work today I headed to the hospital to visit Jackson.  The PO Box is by my work, so I decided that I would stop on the way.  It's been pretty empty lately, after the benefit, so I haven't been checking it as often.  Well, it's a damn good thing I did!  There was one lone envelope in the box.  And in that envelope, a check.  And written on that check were 4 numbers.  A 1, another 1, a 6, and then another 1.  That's right, $1,161!  I had been opening the envelope while walking through the post office to the door, and I stopped in my tracks, my mouth dropped open, and I think I even said "wow!" out loud!  And then my eyes started watering.  The invoice included with the check says that the money is from a PENNY WAR by the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students at Valders Middle School.  How great is that!?  (And wow, can you imagine how much change they had?!)  For those that haven't been following Jackson's story very long, there was another Penny War done at Molly's school (pre-k and k I think), and they raised over $600 for Jackson!  Kids are the greatest, that's for sure.  So this post is for a great big THANK YOU to all the kids that have raised money to help Jackson's family.
THANK YOU!!!
(See I told you it was a BIG thank you!)

Sara,Jake and Molly, Our prayers are definitely with you. we ask God to be with you every step of the way. He is waiting for his little Angel to come back home. In his short little life, he had brought so many people together. His work here on earth is almost through. He will be spending his home up in heaven with all the other little Angels and one day he will be waiting for the rest of you to meet up with him. At that time, he will have so much to tell you. I want to let you know that my family are there for you if you ever need us. Even if it is just for a hug or a shoulder to cry on, we will be there for you. We love you very much and we are very proud of what beautiful parents you are. I know it will be very difficult to let him go, but he will be taken very good care of where he is headed. He will always be watching over you just like you did for him. May God Bless you and be with you. Love you very much!!! Aunt Mary and Uncle Gene xxxxx000000

Jake, Sara and Molly, You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I know you wish you could turn back the hands of time to change things but as I read the last several journal entries I see that you have made some very hard and difficult decisions that only people read about. Your son has been blessed with a great family and you have made many new friends since jackson was born. These people are your support in whatever way as they have been down the same path. I know you have made the right decison,now the rest is up to God and his angels. Jackson will always live in our hearts. God Bless you all.
