Jakob James “JJ” Buck

August 4th 2017

“Held his whole life and only ever knew love.”

Jakob James Buck, or as we like to call him “JJ,” was born to his loving parents, Chanler and Amy Buck at 35 weeks with full understanding that his time here with us would be limited. He must have been created so incredibly special that God wanted him back so soon. He was born and placed in our arms and remained there until he peacefully passed away 1 hour and 35 minutes later. He was held his entire life and only ever knew love.

He weighed exactly 2 pounds and measured 13.5 inches and had the most beautiful wavy dark hair and perfectly tiny hands and feet. He was able to meet his adoring grandparents Kim & Stan Buck and Mary & Jerry Allen as well as his Auntie Tiff, Uncle Nate, Uncle G and sweet big cousin Lilah. He also had an army of close friends and family praying for him and his parents since day one.

JJ was named after his Great Uncle Jake, whom his daddy is also named and his momma’s favorite Grandpa, James. We loved the name JJ as we always thought JJ Buck would be a strong name coming over the loud speakers at Panther Stadium. We believe that there was probably a fight over who got to hold him first in heaven as his Great Grammies Elna and Leila have been waiting for him. We also know that Uncle Jake will be the first one to teach him how to play pranks and tell jokes and Grandpa Jim will surely give him a Coke and take him fishing. These thoughts give us peace in knowing that our boy is truly in a better place. His time with us was too short, and our hearts ache for him to be here, but we take comfort in knowing that as much as we loved him, God loves him more.
