A Tribute to Jack; written for Kate and her family: The Magnificent, Magical, Never Ending Adventure of Moo and Me:SPIRIT JOURNEY

Funny how someone I've never met can touch my heart so deeply... but then again... Love is contagious...


Sweet Jack is now soaring with the eagles, high above the clouds... running pain free through the meadows of vibrant flowers... he is walking hand in hand with God telling stories and finding out all about how the world was made... he is cherished by his sister Kate and his Mom's, Steph ,Jen and Gretchen... he is chasing around Tut and Shelby as they bark and run outside.... he is in the breeze that gently blows a kiss across the cheeks of those he loved... he is the inspiration for those going through hardships as his heart always cared for others.... He is that butterfly who's wings are felt across the ages...Jack may have only been 9 years old in human years, but he shared the knowledge of eternal Love...

The lesson he taught others, the wisdom held in that tiny body with the soul of an angel, was that we are all connected, we are all One, we are all Love.... Jack's body may be gone, but his spirit of Love and sharing, no... shining that Love to all he met... that, dear friends, lives on.. in you, in me, in all he touched... Thank you Jen for sharing your story on caringbridge... and thank you Kate for sharing the best brother ever... he left you big shoes to fill....... and from what Jack and your Mom's and Gretchen say, you have a giving spirit as well and will fill your own shoes well...

So, to everyone that sent prayers and healing;Thank You.... to all that will carry on Jacks legacy of Oneness and Love; Thank you...

And for all those doing and funding research for these deadly diseases and debilitating illnesses; Thank you.

There are some amazing video's on Camp jack's site that melt your heart but truly show the wonderful Spirit that was/is Jack... http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/campjack/journal thank you to Jacks sweet family for sharing him with us... I for one, will never be the same...

May God/Creator Bless you and keep you, may Light shine upon you and may Love fill your heart, mind body and soul, always.

Love and Light,

Nina P

The Magnificent, Magical, Never Ending Adventure
of  Moo and Me:


SPIRIT JOURNEY



There are so many places I want to be

With Kate, my Moms, Moo and Me



There is a story I have to tell

An amazing adventure, I know it well



It's a story of laughter, Love and tears

A story of Hope to quench all fears



For Moo and me, we would visit a lot

You see I went there when I was a tot



It's a colorful place where Love prevails

And Moos have wings and golden tails



I'd go there at night in my dreams

It all was as real, as real as it seems



It's a place where body's have no pain

And rainbow slides follow the rain

Joy and laughter fill the air

And all boys and girls have lots of hair



A place where ice cream is eaten all day

Moo even says, "It's better than hey!"



Come join us tonight it's not that far

Into the night, just beyond that star



Just say your prayers before going to bed

And then lay down your sleepy head

Think happy thoughts of gumdrop days

Let your mind float into a jelly haze



Your heart it beats quiet as a drum

Your breathing will ease into a hum



Your Spirit Journey's about to begin

To a place you can come again and again



It's how we can meet beyond that star

In with and through you, it's not that far



You can always find me in this place

A glowing smile is on my face

We'll meet you here every night past ten

And make you smile like we did back when...



For in your dreams we're never apart

I'm as close as the next beat of your heart



Thank you for coming to my castle in the sky

Where Moo and me can even fly



We can play hide and seek and jump some rope

You can even ride Moo, he'll canter and lope
Come a lot regardless the weather

I'll remind you next time when you find a feather



This Spirit Journey has no end

It's there for every man, woman and friend



So when you miss someone that you love

Go to this place given from Above



For in Love all is connected

On this I know, for I have reflected



Moo and Me; our adventures continue

Magnificent, Magical, Eternally with you



This Spirit Journey is one of the best

For in it I know we're eternally Blessed



In our dreams our worlds can combine

For that is a Promise from the Divine



We can meet and talk and even play

For Spirit's eternal come what may

So dear Kate, it's now up to you

To dream an adventure for us to do

So dream big little sister just like I said

Moo and me' will join you inside your head



I can't wait to see where you'll have us go

Just Spirit dream dear sister and make it so



Tell Mommies too; they can come along

Love makes it possible when it is strong



Journeys can happen inside of your heart

And when they do, we are never apart



Written for Kate and her family
with Love and Light
