Three Years Gone

Jared Luke Garrard
May 18, 1982 - September 4, 2005

One more year has gone by since you left us and I can't help but look back and think of all the things you have missed.
We miss you a lot and think about you often, but life does go on. You have two nephews and one niece that you never got to hold on earth. Soon, that number will climb, because all your sisters are expecting.
Josh and I lost a baby this year. We don't know why, but we know that our baby is with you, until we can be. You may not get to hold Presley on earth, but I know you are with her now. Please hold her tight and keep her safe, until she is in my arms.
Mom continues to fight her cancer and we pray that it will be a long time before she is with you again. Her strength amazes us everyday.
We love you Jared! We are so glad that you are no longer in pain and you are with our Heavenly Father.

What a strong spirit you have protecting your wonderful family from above, and you know he does. Keeps his eyes forever over the family he left behind for a short time, making sure they are all safe and will return to be with him someday! Rest in Peace Jared!!
