Wow. Thank you for sending me this link via YouTube. It's almost 6 am, I got home from work at 4:30 am after a 12 hour shift, and was planning on hitting the hay immediately. But instead, I'm laying here with tears streaming down my face after reading about Jacob. The tears turned to all out crying like a baby when I read the entry you posted that contained the messages that Jacob had written on his computer about you. There are no words for how much this has touched me. I admire your strength and faith more than words can explain. My dad's struggling with stage IV lymphoma right now, and I would give anything to have your faith, strength, and courage, as our family fights this awful disease alongside him. I really hope to get to know you better! Thanks again for blessing me this morning! -Tara (TMichelleMD1@Yahoo.com)

You are an amazing momma, Tiffany!  I'm sure Jacob is feeling might proud of the good things you are doing to help others...he's probably also amazed at the lengths you'll go through!  I'm grateful for him making his presence known and bringing you some reminders of the special times you shared.  I'm continuing to remember you in my prayers and hope this year brings you many smiles.  You deserve so much happiness....sending hugs to you!!

I love that Jacob continues to show you his presence.  And I am so excited for you being one of the 46 mamas.  I still remember when you were shaving Jacob's head....you should tell whoever shaves yours to make sure you have the "old man haircut" before it all gets shaved off.  Jacob would be thrilled watching that! 

Always in my thoughts and prayers!

Tiffany, I was the one who brought you gold ribbons at Jacob's service.  I saw that you are going to be one of the 46 Momma's when I was viewing the website and thought that is an AWESOME thing you are doing!  I knew a few of the mom's that did it last year and now now a few this year.  It is a great way to show the world that "kids get cancer to" and there needs to be more funding for these kids because THEY are our future!  What awesome news about the foundation!!  Wish you great success with it!!  ^^Jacob^^ will continue to show signs that he is watching over you!  Take Care!!

I couldn't bring myself to read Jacob's Caring Bridge page since his death, but I got the urge to look at it again today.,......possibly an intervention by God.  He knew I needed it.

I had assumed there were no new entries since Jacob's death.   By chance, I decided to look at it again during a melancholy moment.  I was very comforted and uplifted by people that continue to be inspired by Jacob's story.

I am so uplifted by so many people who Jacob continues to inspire.  I am convinced that angels do exist, and work as part of the "behind the scenes" crew here on earth.  Jacob must be working overtime.

God Bless all of the children and families that are currently fighting pediatric cancer.

I found this link as I was browsing on Cake Wrecks. I am so very sorry for your loss. Jacob sounds like he was a brilliant human, and I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose someone so precious. My heart goes out to Jacob's family. Know that he is still touching people's hearts even now. I wish you peace.

Happy Birthday Jacob!  I am sure the celebration in heaven was awesome.  You are truly missed here on earth.  The words you wrote about your mom on your computer were so touching.  I am sure not one mom read it without crying.  We as moms hope that is how all our children feel about us.  It was great you wrote it down for her.  She will cherish it for life.

Blessings,

Tiff,

My thoughts are with you and your family constantly. Jacob sure loves his mama. I wish with you that it is a nigthmare that you will just wake up from as well. I want to make a suggestion for the Jaco's siblings. An organization called Ferside. It is a nonprofit organization that meets here in Blue Ash to help children get thru something so horrible and devastating. This place probably saved Derricks life. call me when you get a chance
