Jared only spent 13 short years with his family, (Sept. 23, 1985
- Sept. 29, 1998),
he really had a great time doing
all the fun things a kid usually does. Below you will learn about
his birth and short life, and some of the neat things Jared did, even as
a baby, that set him apart from most children.
As Jared's mom, I welcome
you to my grief project, JaredStory.com. You will find an abundance of stories about Jared, research
concerning bullying, depression, suicide prevention and suicide, as
well as some motherly advise. There are pages with serious subject
matter, as well as pages filled with laughter. This website
is not meant to be a sad or depressing website, but an educating, hopeful
and loving memorial to my son, and all children who have gone home early.

happy moments in your own life when all your cares were gone.
loss filled our lives with grief,
but the healing has come. Our family has found hope in understanding
Jared's purpose in life and in The
Meaning of Life. As I have written some of Jared biography
down for others to read, I muse over the memories I have of Jared, mostly
wonderful memories. I challenge all my readers to write down their
own wonderful (and maybe not so wonderful) memories to read at a later
time in life. Your thoughts now become someone's history and wonderful
memories to cherish forever.
