My brother and his wife’s first child: Jack Lucas Conklin
First grandchild of the family. Born 6/16/11.
Quote my brother: “We named him Jack. I love what Jack means: ‘God is gracious.’ He truly is.”
“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. The soul that rises with us, our life’s star, hath had elsewhere its setting, and comet from afar: not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.”
