This site is dedicated to Jasper, his family and friends on earth, plus his many new friends in Heaven.  His short time with us was filled with love and laughter.  His death has filled us with hurt and despair.  I hope he will find his way into your heart, as he did mine.  Jasper's favorite times on earth was with his friends, wearing his tie-dyed tee shirts and listening to 70's music.  Please be ready to have him rock and roll his way into your hearts.  God bless you all. Jasper, I miss you!
Please meet my son Jasper.  He was tragically killed by a drunk driver at the age of 15.  Inside these pages you may experience feelings of life, death, tears, grief, sadness, laughter, happiness, new beginnings and eventually a new understanding and realization of what it means to lose a child.  You are invited to walk with me through my journey of grief.  You might want to get a cup of coffee and a kleenex, as my journey takes many twists and turns, not unlike a roller coaster ride.  I never did like roller coasters. I pray you will be able to leave Jasper's site with a new hope that together we can make life better for anyone that has lost a loved one to death, no matter what the circumstances.  Please walk softly through Jasper's pages. They hold torn pieces of my heart.
