I pray for you and your family at this most difficult time. I have been "introduced" to you and Jax thru my sister Theresa Brown and have been following thru Facebook as well. I so enjoyed his beautiful smiles and I have shed tears for his passing. May you find comfort in knowing how many "strangers" you have both touched and have fallen in love with you all. God bless.
