Jack and Knox. Brothers. They were getting to be such buddies. We(the girls, Jon and I) often would call both Jack and Knox, Buddy as a nickname. Jack had taken to calling Knox that some. "Hey Buddy!", he would say. They played together. They fussed some, but they had such fun together. Jack was a good big brother. He knew to share with Knox and to let him do things his way at least part of the time. In the picture above, he was chasing Knox and you can tell that he was letting Knox stay just ahead of him...letting him "win." I can just hear him telling Knox, "I am going to get you, Buddy." My heart aches that Jack doesn't get to grow up with his "buddy." I pray that he really and truly remembers the fun they had together!
