Jacobs Funeral

Well today was the funeral.  The funeral started at 10:00 am and wasn't over until 2:45.  Everyone involved did a super job.  David , his Dad was the first to speak and he told of their earliest memories of Jacob and contnued until the last day.  He said he wanted it to be a celebratuon of Jacobs life.  His friend Brittany sang a song that she and another friend of Jacobs wrote laste night.  When I see you in Heaven we will dance forever.  Two of the guys in his band sang a song about Rain.  His girlfriend Tyler read the poem I wrote.  Blake his friend and one of the guys in the accident spoke of his great friendship with Jacob and how this was his third accident he has had recently where God spared his life.  He knows God has something big for him to do.  HIs child hood friend got up and told about when they were 4 and his big sister Emily married them, convinced them they had to kiss and then went and told on them.  Jacob was loved by many people and no one wanted to say goodbye, but God wanted him back. 

Tomorrow I start my new job and I am a little nervous about it, but I know I will do fine.  My son is still here and leaves tomorrow so I need to go feed him and spend every moment I can with him.

A note, I don't know why but I have been getting hives every night around 7-9.  It lasts all night and keeps me up with itchy skin.  Tonight as I type this my upper lip has swollen up for some reason.  I am thinking it is probably just my nerves and that I finally stop for the day and need to focus on other things,  If it doesn.t get better soon I guess I will break down and go to the doctor.  Until tomorrow...nite Barbara

Can you take Benadryl?  It works wonders for the hives, if it ever happens again.  They also make a Benadryl cream and/or gel.  It is probably nerves, as you had a lot going on at the time of this entry.  Again, my condolences.

Love and prayers,
Susan

P.S.  If I am not mistaken, the 21st of November is the 10th anniversary of Jeremy's death.  He would be 29 now.
