Happy Birthday, Jared

Today, Josh's little brother should be turning 29.

He should be married, to a beautiful girl, with a few wonderful children running around his legs, calling him Daddy. He should be fishing and golfing with his brothers. He should be complaining about working too hard and not having enough money. He should be teasing his sister and pulling his nieces and nephews on to his lap, to tickle them.

Instead, he left us, too soon. Too young...and too soon.

We love you and miss you, Jared. It's unbelievable to us, that you have been gone almost six years. The family has been through so many changes, since you left. Some people have been taken away and some people have been added...but the hole of your absence has never been filled.

Give Mom a hug for us and hold my Carter tight. We know we'll see you again, someday. <3
