Let us know you visited!
We like to hear from those who have been touched by Jaymun's life.
Send an email to: email@example.com and we'll post it here.
Or respond to Jennifer's memory book request.
We appreciate Jaymun's world-wide "family" ...lets support each other.

On Oct. 3 in Jaymun's journal you wrote:
"God gave us a gift, a wonderful extra year so far with our son who is one of the most excitable, cheerful little persons I know."
Those words were the first thing I thought of when I learned Jaymun had headed home to Heaven.
Imagine how exicted, overjoyed and jubilant he was to arrive in Heaven,
to see the wonderful things that those of us here have yet to see, to be free of pain and surrounded by love.
I'll bet he's wearing a nonstop grin, and that there's an alligator farm there just for him.
Much love to you, Jennifer and your family from Houston, Texas. Ronda

I have been following your blog for some time.
I came to it from following the struggle of my neighbor Julie Lyons down here in Houston.
Just as much as you never wanted to write your most recent post, I never wanted to read it.
I am so sorry for your loss. I have two boys ages 2 and 4 so I have marveled at how you balanced letting
Jaymun be a little boy along with his treatment. Julie Lyons was a wonderful mother to her three young children and
I have no doubt she was waiting to help little Jaymun on his new journey. I don't think it was a coincidence at all
that on the day of Jaymun's passing my children and I saw three different rainbows around Houston.
You are in our thoughts. The Leben Family

Dear Dave, Jennifer & Family:
I can't imagine the unspeakable pain you are going through at this time, and we are praying that you will sense the nearness of the God of all comfort in this difficult time.
I would like to thank you so much for sharing Jaymun's Journey with us. Looking through your journal entries from the past few years, they provide such an incredible testament to the goodness of our Heavenly Father in your lives. While so many of your journal entries speak of anxiety and fear, they all give evidence of the love of Christ in your lives (and Jaymun's), and the incredible strength (both spiritual and physical) that you have been given to take care of such a special little boy. It's my hope and prayer that your journal entries, etc will be used for both the physical and spiritual good of many.
No doubt 'Jaymun's Journey' has just begun as he now abides forever before the blessed countenance of our dear Lord and Saviour. I encourage you to stay close to Jesus, seeking that comfort and strength from Him in the days and months to come.
We love you so much in our Lord Jesus Christ, Blessings, John Lobbezoo and Family

I received an email from Jenny Ress about your son and was going to send you some songs this morning.
I donít think I met you at Todd's funeral, but I'm the one that sang at the end of the service.
I checked your website before sending this email and am so saddened by your post.
My heart aches for you and your children at the loss of your son and brother.
I also have a 3 year old son and can't imagine what you are going through.
May you find comfort in knowing he is no longer hurting and now in peace up in heaven.
Although we donít know each other, please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

That is what I have. I have been following your story for a little over a year now
(first introduced by Jody Ferlaak) and just wanted to let you know that another person is holding your family in prayer.
I wish I had better words to offer....
13 Oct 09 - 11:48 PM
I just got the information. I know that you probably are not going to read this for a while, but please rest assured that I am praying for you and your family.
Jaymun is now with his Heavenly Father. May you rest assured in the certainty that we all will see Jaymun face-to-face that glorious day.
13 Oct 09 - 11:06 PM
Dear Kaat family,
I have no words to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I know Jaymun is having a party in heaven, but the hurt you bear has to feel so heavy. My heart is burdened for you. I loved checking your blog and seeing his cute, cheeky smile. His life has blessed so many, and know that we are all surrounding your family in prayer!
13 Oct 09 - 9:53 PM
Dearest Jaymun's Family,
My heart is just broken for you. I am so very, very sorry for your loss.
What an incredible little boy.
Brothers, Sister, Mom and Dad you should all be so very proud of the wonderful family you made for sweet Jaymun. I'm sure Jaymun felt more love in his short life than many feel in a long lifetime.
You certainly helped him live his life to the fullest and squeeze every little ounce out of the time he was given.
You all fought so hard for him. Rest knowing you did do all you could do for him and all that God intended for you to do. Truly, inspirational.
When I see a cherub in a painting or picture one in my mind, it will be Jaymun's face I see. A more perfect angel with such a sweet disposition could simply not be.
Thanks again for sharing a tiny bit of the little boy who left huge footprints.
Love from your biggest fan in Canada, dear Jaymun.
13 Oct 09 - 9:46 PM
Thank you to all the Kaats for sharing Jaymun's life with us. Lynn and I
were touched by his joy in life and are so saddened by his leaving.

There is a BEAUTIFUL song done by Karen Taylor Good that you might like to listen to.
She has made it available at no charge to all who would like to use it.
It makes me cry, but I've found that it takes less energy to cry and let the pain wash over me than to fight it.
13 Oct 09 - 9:22 PM
Dear Kaat Family,
My heart breaks with grief for all of you. I cannot imagine what it
is like to lose a child or a sibling. You all continue to be in my
prayers, and I hope you all know what an inspiration you are and what
a witness of Christ's love and peace you give to the rest of us. I am
too late in sending a song idea for Jaymun to hear, but this one is
for you guys. It's one that brought (and continues to bring) special
peace to me after the passing of my mom just a few months ago. Chris
Tomlin, I Will Rise
. Indeed, Jaymun hear's Christ's voice and will
rise to a place of no more sorrow, no more pain.
Love to each of you, Melissa Pratt
13 Oct 09 - 9:21 PM
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Take comfort in the fact that he is with God and His angels,
and he is now a very special guardian angel for your family. God bless you and your family.
13 Oct 09 - 9:11 PM
Dear David and Jennifer and your entire family,
Please accept our deepest condolances on the loss or your little angel, Jaymun.
My Mom was telling me about Jaymun and I just spent the last hour or more reading his story and my heart just aches for you.
I just can not imagine... Our thoughts and prayers go with you,

Dear Dave and Jen,
I wish I had the right words, the right bible passage, anything that could provide you an ounce of comfort.
Your faith, strength and grace has Godís fingerprints all over them.
Just know that your friends are thinking and praying for you.
We will pray that God wrap his arms around you and your family.
It has been beautiful seeing God work through you. Thank you for sharing your pain and your triumphs.
Thank you for letting us see your journey. Thank you Dave for teaching us about alternative medicine.
Thank you Jen for showing us what a beautiful and graceful mother you are.
Thank you Kaat family for sharing Jaymun with us. It is our turn to love on you.
Know we love.

Hi. I just read your blog on Jaymun and I cannot express how much my heart sympathizes with you and your family. I am sorry about Jaymun's loss but I am so happy that you and your family trusts in the Lord. God gives peace and rest to those who seek it and know that Jaymun is fully at peace and has his rest. You all are in our prayers. May God be with you and your family and give you strength and courage for the days ahead.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5:4

Praise God that even while our hearts are breaking, we can feel joy knowing that Jaymun is safe and
happy and free in our loving Saviorís arms.
I pray that God will surround you with His comfort and peace.

I have been following your blog for at least the last year.
I am so very sorry to have read your posting today.
I will continue to pray for your family during this most difficult time.
I pray you are able to find peace. Selina
13 Oct 09 - 7:03 PM
I know that Jaymun died. I am kind of sad.
But, I know he is in heaven.
I know you are sad because he was your brother and was fun to play with.
It was funny when he called me Zachy. I hope you feel better soon.
Jesus loves you.
From Zach S.
13 Oct 09 - 6:42 PM
Dave, Jennifer and kids...
It was really hard to read the post today... even though it seemed as though that's where things were
going this past week. It is never easy.
But, for you all... it has to be really hard to loose a son and brother. But, I know that where he is he knows
of everything that you did for him, the love that you all had for him... and that he will be waiting for all of you
to join him some day... with open arms to give you that big hug that you were wishing for Dave.
I am so happy, though, that you got the extra time that you had with him... when it seemed a couple of years
ago that he might not make it back then. Remember those times.
I thank you for letting me be a small part of your lives and for you allowing me to do a little something during
a hard time.
My prayers will remain with your family now.
13 Oct 09 - 6:39 PM
So, so very sorry for your loss. Your family will remain in our prayers daily.

Dear Family of Jaymun, I am so sorry for your loss, now we must remember that he is sitting in the palm of our Lord and Saviors hand,
running, laughing and not hurting anymore. No more pain, just being the little angel that he is.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time in your lives. Blessings to you all Sheri Kostic
13 Oct 09 - 5:43 PM
I was so sad to read the post from today, October 13. My heart goes out to your family.
Jaymun is watching over you all now and waiting for the day that you will all meet in Heaven.
I read through his and your journey last night, and shared with you all as you had many good times and the bad times.
I was praying that Jaymun was going to recover from his last journey to the hospital.
It breaks my heart to see his journey here on Earth end, but knowing his journey now begins in Heaven with God and
Jesus leading him to salvation. God bless your family and may peace be with you all.
13 Oct 09 - 5:40 PM
Dave and Jennifer,
I am so sorry to hear about Jaymun, he was a fighter, and now he is in the hands of God where he is now pain free and running around.
You did everything for that little boy, God saw that and he will be very gentle with Jaymun.
Again I am very sorry about Jaymun. Betty
13 Oct 09 - 5:22 PM
Dave and family
I am so sorry to hear about Jaymun, we met you at Give Kids the World,
my daughter was Breanna that had ALL. You did all you could do for your son.
You refused to give up and some day your herbs and all your knowledge will save others who are suffering these cancers,
No child should have to go through this, Jaymun byfar went though more then anyone should of had.
Jaymun is happy now he's not sick any more he is free.

Though the news is not totally unexpected I can't stop crying from the
shock of it. Please know that people all over the world join you in a
strange mixture of mourning and rejoicing. Your little boy, possessor of
an unearthly winsome sweetness, will be remembered always by many
people. I am so glad that he is with Jesus right now, but my heart is
full for your whole family.
I have grown to love Jaymun's entire family!
He will be missed and so will you, Dave and Jennifer.
I've never met parents who tackled cancer the way you have (especially
you Dave). You're both amazing.
The body of Christ around the world wraps their arms around you and your
children. May you experience the peace that passes all understanding.

Words cannot express the sadness I feel at your loss of Little Jaymun.
I have cheered for him and all of you these past months since I found your blog.
He has been a bright sunshine in your lives and will be terribly missed.
Your story has been an inspiration to me to keep fighting and never give up, but also to always remember that the Lord
is in charge and His will be done. I know that you will find comfort in the many wonderful memories you have of
this precious boy..
You are an amazing family and I know you have grown much in faith, courage, closeness, knowledge,
and appreciation for God's gifts, miracles, and Tender Mercies that he bestowed upon you because of
his great love for all of you.
Please know that thousands of prayers have been sent to heaven in Jaymun's behalf and have been heard.
Sometimes the answer we get is not what we want but someday we will come to know and understand His Plan for each of us.
Love, Dawna Greer
13 Oct 09 - 4:44 PM
It has been an honor to have "known" Jaymun through you. He is a beautiful boy.
I say "is" because I know he is gloriously beautiful in Heaven.
I know the angels are singing and there is a great welcoming celebration as one of God's saints has come home.
I pray that God wrap your family in His love and that He carry your griefs and sorrows.
May He also comfort your remaining children.
Finally, may He come quickly to gather us who remain. Bud
13 Oct 09 - 4:30 PM
Dearest Dave, Jenny, and family,
When God, in His infinite wisdom, entrusted dear Jaymun to your care,
He knew that you had the capacity to love him, care for him, and to spend over three years of your life rarely
thinking about yourselves. Every day of his life, Jaymun knew he was loved by you and by God Himself.
At the great and final Day of the Lord, you will each be among the sheep, hearing Jesus say,
"Whatever you did for the least of my brethren, you did unto Me." Well done, good and faithful servants of the Lord!
Our hearts burn with compassion for your loss and we pray for you in your time of recovery and rest.
In service to Christ, Pastor Greg Laska
13 Oct 09 - 4:10 PM
Dearest Mom and Dad, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Thank you for giving me the wonderful opportunity to take care of your angel his last night with us here on earth.
I am sure he felt the presence of his brothers and sister around him.
Wishing all of you peace, nurse Lori

i am truly heartbroken for you. i do not understand God's plan sometimes - this is one of those times.
you have awed and inspired me to be a better parent. i pray for you daily.
13 Oct 09 - 3:56 PM
My heart is heavy for your loss.....
I have followed your family's story for some time now and would check your postings daily.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time.
13 Oct 09 - 3:48 PM
Dear Parents and family
There is no reason that you would know me. I read about your loss by way of a link on face book.
Every time I read of a loss such as yours it brings back strong emotions.
I was a foster parent many years ago and became baby jessica's foster dad. She was born with holoprosencephaly
to make a long story short, she was expected to only live a few months maybe a year and typically in a vegetative state.
She was any thing but vegetative. I also did not have any children from me, so she took the place in my heart were
my baby would have. Needless to say God used Jessica to soften my heart and bring me to him.
She passed away at about 13 months.
For years after I just did not get it,
"why God why bring these children into the world to suffer".
One night at a bible study He made it clear, She wasn't my child she was His and I was given the
amazing privilege to be her stand in parent.
I understand that there is no bond like that between a parent and child, that is an amazing gift.
I pray that you are surrounded with loving family and friends during this time and that you
will be able to cherish the time you had with Jaymun.
With love, Kevin Badgley
P.S. There will be people who will cross you path that can benefit from your experience,
I see that you have shared your journey so far, please don't stop.
13 Oct 09 - 3:47 PM
May the spirit of God lift you and carry you through this great loss.
13 Oct 09 - 3:45 PM
Hi, David and Jennifer and family,
I am so sad to see that your little Jaymun didn't make it this time.
I know for him it is wonderful, but I know for you all it will be very difficult.
I didn't want to have to see you go through this, but now we are facing a new beginning.
You will always be in my prayers, and know that you can call if you need to talk.
Most of the time I don't want to talk when I'm hurting, but I know that there are times when
I have to speak to someone who understands. I love you all very much, and little Jaymun has
become so much a part of my life that I will miss him tremendously.
He will never be forgotten. Love, Aunt Janie
13 Oct 09 - 2:39 PM
Dave, Jen, and Family, please know that although I have never written in the guest book that I have faithfully
checked it multiple times a day! I felt it was my only connection to you Dave as my cousin seeing that
it has been awhile since I have seen you! I just want you all to know that we are all so very saddened about
Jaymun but yet we know that he is happy and healthy where he is now. He is probably giving (Great Grandma Kaat a
run for her money up there. Please know that your entire family is here for you! We love you all!
Sorry again about Jaymun, our prayers are with you for strength to get through this rough time ahead!
Love Missi T., Jeremy, Travis, and Robert
13 Oct 09 - 2:34 PM
My heart is breaking with you guys today. I have followed Jayman's story for about a year and half now.
I work in a small hospital in Texas and I have shared his story with my co-workers here.
The strength that God has given the two of you as parents is remarkable.
No words can fill the pain you are expercing today or for a long time to come.
Jayman's brothers and sister need you now to be strong for them.
You guys as a family can cry together and laugh together as you share memories of him.
God knew his little body was tired and took him to a place where he will never hurt again.
God i ask that you wrap your arms around Dave and Jennifer today and give them strength to face the days ahead.
I thank you for your love. And i thank you for Jayman that you allowed him to brighten our day. In your name i Pray.
13 Oct 09 - 2:18 PM
Tears for your loss, tears for the losses that will continue to show themselves in the years to come.
But also thanks to God for preparing an eternal home for Jaymun,
one where you will all reunite someday. In the meantime,
the part of you that misses him, craves his smile and laughter and eager hug will loom large,
and for those of us who have arrived at that place before you, we are ready listeners, and will be forever.

13 Oct 09 - 2:05 PM
I have followed your blog almost from the beginning.
I was devastated to read that Jaymun passed away this morning.
My heart hurts for all of you. You have all fought hard, in fact I think if you wouldn't have
fought so hard he wouldn't have made it through this last year.
A year's worth of memories, and time spent with your little guy.
I will continue to say my prayers for everyone, and God Bless all of you, and your sweet little Jaymun.
13 Oct 09 - 2:04 PM
Dear Dave, Jen, and children; I am heart broken for your loss of Jaymun,
But, I am also celebrating for your lovely boy's reunion with our Lord.
The Lord's will is a mystery to us in times such as these, we must rely
on our Faith to pull us through.
I will say what we are all thinking;
You couldn't have worked harder or done more for sweet little Jaymun.
You all have a special place in my heart.
Bless Jaymun and all of you! Love, Joan and Zachary Stoffel
13 Oct 09 - 1:54 PM
There are no words that we can say to make the pain go away, but know that our hearts and prayers are
with you in this time of sorrow. If there is anything we can do for you please don't hesitate to ask.
He is with God and that is what we can take comfort in. He no longer feels any pain, his body is perfect with no sickness,
and he is so very happy and now watches over you all.

I don't know what to say either, but, saying nothing doesn't feel right either.
I will remember Jaymun as the adorable cutie patootie he was. I only knew Jaymun from your words, pictures and video,
yet I loved him immensely.
My condolences to your family and all that have loved and lost Jaymun. Kathryn K.

Hello Dave & Jennifer,
You will continue to be in our hearts and prayers as you grieve your loss.
We understand that Jaymun is walking / running & giggling on streets of gold with Jesus right now,
but it is painful to let go. Jaymun's main paige scripture seems very fitting...
Their own arm did not save them, but Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, for You favored them.
Love & prayers, Ron & Sue Schroeter
13 Oct 09 - 1:37 PM

Dear Family of Beautiful Jaymun,
I have been following your blog since Jaymun's birth and have kept all of
you in my prayers. I will continue to pray in the coming days. When I lost
my daughter 5 years ago, the song "In Your Presence O God" became very dear to me. It is
where we all belong and where Jaymun now resides, strong and well. May He
alone be your comfort.
In Christ, Melinda Lee

It is with sorrow that I read your last post. All I can say is that your journey with Jaymun and the
subsequent website has helped and touched many peoples lives. This is what makes life count, the services
and help to others. I know that the knowledge attained through this trip enabled Dad to help me with issues
involving my daughter's cancer and side effects.
Many thanks to you as a family for reaching out to others. You definitely had an impact in our lives.
13 Oct 09 - 12:26 PM
We are so sorry for your loss. May the Lord be your strength in the days and weeks to come.
We are friends of Amy Wilhoite and we have kept up with little Jaymun ever since we found out

Your family has touched my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. Every day for the last 3 years I have checked in on Jaymun and without ever meeting him he has found a place in my heart.
I have no more words. You are all in my thoughts. Kerry
13 Oct 09 - 12:06 PM
I just would like to tell you that we may be sad,angry and all the other feelings we have at this moment.
But never forget that in heaven TODAY is happening the happiest party ever.
Today the clouds are brighter aginst the blue sky that we have down under.
And A new star is really shining in the most beautiful corener of the sky.
The Angels are all celebrating the Jaymun is coming to his eternal life.
Heaven is a better place today.
My mom will be waiting for him with her arms wide opened to hug and comfort him as much as he need.
Many hugs and all my love.
PS -sorry for my bad english.
13 Oct 09 - 12:03 PM
Words cannot express how sorry I am for this heartbreaking news. I cannot imagine your pain.
People all over the world fell in love with Jaymun and he touched so many people.
What a special little boy and a special family. I am so sorry.
13 Oct 09 - 11:49 AM
Words can not explain how said I feel for all of you.
I can't imagine the pain you are in; and frankly would never want to experience it.
But please know that if we can take ANY of your burden upon ourselves, we would gladly do so.
Rest in peace, Jaymun. Jesus has taken you home and is holding you in his arms.
Tim and Judi Pool
13 Oct 09 - 11:47 AM
I have been following Jaymun's story for over a year now. I'm so very sad to hear of his passing.
I admire everything you've done for your son. God rest his beautiful little soul.

Peace be with you and your Family and mostly, little Jaymun.
And Peace to the team of nurses who worked round the clock.

Dear Kaat Family,
I just want to say how very sorry I am to hear of Jaymun's death.
His life and your family's love has touched me deeply.
Your family will remain in my prayers as you look to Him for comfort.
May you be filled with the knowledge and experience of His deep love for you, of
His faithfulness and goodness even during times of devastating loss.
Forgive me, but I have included the words to a song that has been ministering to my heart as I walk in the mornings.
Sovereign Grace Music put the following words (slightly adapted from the original) to music in 2008.
It is such an encouraging song, rich with truth and full of hope for those who know Jesus.
It Is Not Death To Die
It is not death to die, to leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high
Who've found their home with God.
It is not death to close the eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne
Delivered from our fears.
O Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save.
Those who trust in You will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die.
< It is not death to fling aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing
To live among the just.
It is not death to hear the key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years
To praise You evermore!
Original Words by Henri Malan (1787-1864)
Grieving With You - But not as those without hope!

Dear Kaat Family-
I have been checking your website regularly. Jaymun was 2 days older than my nephew.
Jennifer-our families grew up together (I used to be a Sandrone). I have been praying for Jaymun everday.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of sadness.
May God hold you, your family and Jaymun in his arms close to his heart and give you the strength to carry on.
You now have an angel watching over you and taking care of each and every person in your life.
I will continue to pray for your family and Jaymun. God Bless all of you.

There is a stillness in my heart this morning.
As I read the words that this dear one,your dear one...
this one you shared so openly with us
that this precious little boy has gone.
I weep with tears of joy and tears of sorrow.
Knowing that your pain is deeper
that this overwhelming grief I feel is nothing
compared to yours.
It was just yesterday that I was wondering
how little Jaymun was doing.
It was just yesterday that I realized I had
not checked in for a long time.
But in this time your lives had continued.
While I neglected just reading...
You were immersed in face to face loving
and suffering and hurting.
I am so sorry for your loss.
I rejoice in the promises that God has given
us in eternal life beyond this earth.
But in this moment I stand with you in your grief.
In stillness. In quiet. In prayer.
With much love and tears,

Dave, Jennifer and family,
I am so sorry to hear that Jaymun has lost his fight. I don't know what to say, I know nothing can take away your pain.
My I can't imagine how you feel, and won't pretend to, but I do know that you know that Jaymun is in Heaven,
surrounded by God, Jesus and lots and lots of angels who will take good care of him. For those of you who he
leaves behind, he'll always be your special angel, protecting you in any way that he can. You made his time here
on Earth as precious as possible, and I truly believe what Jen once posted. God chose you to take care of Jaymun
because your family could give him the extra love and attention he needed in his short visit here.
Please know that there are a lot of people out there who are praying for all of you, to help you as you struggle
through this time.

I have followed your family and little Jaymun from the beginning...I have prayed all along...my very deepest prayers
go to you parents this morning and Jaymun's siblings. The Lord is holding Jaymun in his arms as you well know.
He is at peace. I am so very sorry for your loss here on earth. As a parent I just have no words to express but
I am hopeful that the prayer and support of so many along with the love of our Father may allow you the strength
and quiet moments to find peace in the next days.
Blessings upon you, Valarrie Robinson

I was very saddened when I read about Jaymun! You have both cared so deeply and thouroughly for him.
The research that you did, and the care that you gave, kept Jaymun alive, living and enjoying life
for so very much longer than anyone ever thought. I willl miss taking care of him out here at New Berlin radiology.
Love, Pam Grande RN

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I want you to know Jaymun helped give me my faith back.
It was watching God's miracle in December 2006 with Jaymun that made me believe in the power of prayer again.
God be with you. - Jennifer K

You are a wonderful family with all the strength and love to carry him to Heaven.

To the entire Kaat family,
My deepest heartfelt sympathy to all of you on such a heartwrenching loss.
I think that everyone who followed Jaymun's daily struggle is suffering along with you and we will all miss him dearly.
He was such a big part of my daily routine...checking the website to see how he was doing.
Try to have some comfort in knowing that Jaymun is now whole again and up there smiling
and entertaining God now and making Him smile. We will all see him again someday.
You were so blessed by God to have him with you even if it was for such a short time.
You will always be in our thoughts........Mary Lou (Culligan Water)

Dave, Jennifer, Ben, Kirsten, Shawn and Devon~Our sincerest sympathy to all of you.
You have all been such a wonderful example of what "family" should be like.
You have been SO blessed to have such a wonderful beautiful boy in your lives and so was he blessed
to have such amazing and wonderful parents as you and to have such a loving sister and brothers.
Please give the kids hugs for us and know he is in an amazing beautiful place where there is no more pain and suffering.
My mom never got to hold her grandchildren so know that my mom is embracing him in her arms and
taking wonderful care of him in Heaven and he will always ALWAYS be with you.

Dearest Kaat Family - just wanted to send you my most heartfelt condolences typed through tears I shed for your Jaymun.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing him with us.
Perhaps it will make you feel the smallest bit better to know the impact he had on our family.
As well as the example of your faith, his life has made a difference in ours.
His impact on this world is long from over I feel, he has started something bigger than himself
and perhaps that was his purpose here. I am sure every angel in heaven was present to greet him this morning.
We will now shift our praying to your hearts and your peace.
Love Andi Fishlock
and Family Pa.

He was a brave little boy and a great fighter.....I heard a quote once that might help through this tough time.
"Always Blessings, Never Losses" He was a blessing to your family and he had so much love surrounding him!!
God Bless all of you and many prayers are with you.

I was expecting to open up and find more information about what was happening.
I am so sorry to see that you had no words. Thank you for sharing your journey with us,
your information is important. Thank you. And thanks to Jaymun for being such a light.
13 Oct 09 - 11:01 AM
I wish I could do more than cry. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I can't imagine your grief, but I am sharing some of it with you.
13 Oct 09 - 10:45 AM
While my heart aches for you and your family, I draw comfort in knowing that little Jaymun rests, at peace,
in the arms of Our Savior. May you find comfort and peace in the days ahead knowing you are loved by a
community of faith. - Angie
