Misc. Monday: Jawno






It breaks my heart to say that we lost a dear friend this weekend. Jawn passed away this Saturday and we have not thought of much else since. This blog is really for Lilly and the thought of coming on here and not mentioning something that has so deeply touched our lives doesn't seem right. We want Lilly to remember who Jawn was. She sees him on our fridge everyday, and loves when he comes over to visit. She knows him now and it hurts to think that she won't remember him. Jawn met her a few days after she was born and he gave Lilly her first official pink Dodger jersey. I am so glad that his pictures grace her photo albums. We will be able to tell her about her silly friend Jawn who loved her so much. Lilly loved to play peek-a-boo with Jawn and was so excited when he let her play his drums at church. Jawn will be missed terribly by our family. We love him and know that he truly is in a better place.
