Hi friends. I’m sorry to give you some bad news. Jack was feeling sick over the last week with what we thought was tooth pain. Unfortunately it was an aggressive cancer that had invaded his lymph nodes, chest cavity, and abdominal area. It had attached to the spleen and spine. He was declining rapidly over the weekend and when we took him in for X-rays and ultrasound it all came clear. He was very peaceful at the end and he is at rest now. We are sad and quite in shock, but wanted you to know. Jack brought so much joy to us and to the world. His 9th birthday was yesterday, October 21.
