Angel of Hope Part 2

Friday October 13, 2006
After Jory flew back to SLC, we planned our visit to the Christmas Box Angel to leave a letter and a flower for Jack. We went to the Flower Patch in Midvale to pick out a white flower and they only had white daisies. A sweet girl came over to help me and she couldn't find any white flowers either. She then asked me what it was for. I told her I was taking it to the cemetery and she asked if it was for a boy or girl. I told her it was for a baby boy. She then said she was very sorry and if I didn't mind her asking, how old? So I told her about Jack. She was shocked it had only been a little over a month and how strong I must be. Just as I was about to give up, we walked by shelves of glass flowers and vases. They happened to have quite a few long stem white glass flowers that looked beautiful. They were only $6 which is about the same price as any live flower so I figured if it was stolen, I wasn't out any more money then a live flower that would eventually die anyway. I picked out the perfect one for Jack and we were on our way.

I was in total shock when Jack's flower was the perfect fit for the Angel's hands.

Other parents had left a Halloween Boyd's Bear, teething ring and flowers.

Check out that Pink spot below the stem. It couldn't possibly be a reflection from the red part of the flower because it's facing the wrong way. We're not sure what it is but it shows up in one other picture too. Maybe it's Jack's spirit?

Here's the other picture with that pink light showing up.
I was not using a flash, so I'm not sure what it is.

Actually I see it in this one too. Really weird.

We wrote Jack a letter and left it with the flower.

When I first loaded the pictures on the computer I noticed that the flower pistol looks like
a bird.

As it should be,
Computer magic.

The angles aren't perfect, but it's good enough.

As we walked up to the Angel we noticed a ladybug hanging out on the wing. I think it flew and landed on Jory first, he then blew it off his shoulder and it flew back to the Angel. It then flew over on me so I blew it off and it landed on the Angel wing. Everytime we shoo'd it away, it would return to the Angel and them come back to us. This felt very similar to my first visit when I saw the deer. I have to believe these are signs from Jack. Kind of like he's saying "Hello, I'm here with you!"
