brantgoose: I think I saw that movie.Isn't that the one where one of the conditions of the free prom dress is that you have to take Jake to the prom? He's in a bottle, except, of course, when some joker unscrews the lid and Jake the Kid runs amuck with an ice pick, killing dozens of teenagers and weird chaperons and teachers.Inspired by a true story, I hear.
Shirley Ujest: JonPace: Millennium: SevenizGud: FTFA:On May 16, 2012, at just 7 1/2 months old, Jacob died. He was a victim, like thousands of infants each year, of Sudden Unexplained Infant Death Syndrome."How do you even begin to cope with that?" his mother asked.Maybe start by not putting the infant in the crib face down, you FARKing tard./she should be in prisonThe whole face-up/face-down thing has gone back and forth enough times over the years that I don't think it's a safe assumption to cry negligence, especially based on an assumption like that.At 7.5 months the baby is able to roll around on his own, anyways.At 7 months our daughter was walking. She's now 13 and in competitive cheer.
FirstDennis: Dang. Why doesn't tiny pic work anymore?
branchtroy: She found out that the article that was written about her was green lighted on fark. She about flipped. Said that was the most horrible thing she ever read.

Fano: Poor Mrs. spentmiles. Well when live gives you lemons...
Cagey B: This story really hits home for me, because I too had an infant son named Jake die too soon. In fact, I've had a similar means of coping with it.Even though he couldn't talk yet, Jake really liked to go to the park and sit by the pond where they fed the ducks. It's something we did together all the time, until one morning we woke up to find that he was no longer with us.As I sat at the duck pond by myself, I thought of the birthday I'd planned for Jake, that was going to be right here by the place he loved so well. A birthday we'd never get to celebrate. And then I thought of all the birthdays that we would miss, until it was too much to bear. Then I considered other children, who didn't get to have birthday parties, and my mind was made up as to what to do.I started a program where I distributed small, packaged cakes to those children who didn't have any for their birthdays. Naturally, I called them "Jake's Cakes", and each one has a picture of a duck, in honor of the little guy.

The My Little Pony Killer: I wonder how she made the connection between wanting to do something to commemorate her lost child and prom dresses for poor girls.

The rest of the visit is uneventful, but no matter how they try to rationalize it, they can never quite convince themselves they didn't see jake move, just a little bit.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: While I approve of this particular charity, the name is... sorta unnerving.
