Where are Sawyer & Jake?

I do not know exactly what I believe happens to us after we die.  I like to think that Jake and Sawyer are with me where ever I go.  Perhaps they are with Evan, the twins and others as well.  Are they angels?

According to the free dictionary one definition of an angel is “a typically benevolent celestial being that acts as an intermediary between heaven and earth, especially in Christianity, Judaism, Islam. . .”.  Every religion seems to offer a different view on what happens after we die. 

I go to the cemetery to “visit” Jake and Sawyer.  I know that they are not really there.  It is just their physical remains which are buried in that plot.  I do not like to think about that part – especially in the cold weather.   Cremation would have solved that issue for me but at the time I was so numb and just went through the motions of a Jewish burial.  

Like so many of my questions about Jake and Sawyer, this one will be unanswered.  I have made up my own answer.  Jake and Sawyer are in our hearts.  I hope that if they are actually somewhere else that they are safe, happy and know how much they are loved.  I will always look for them in my dreams.

  1. That’s a lovely sentiment! And I absolutely agree….they are in our hearts as well.

  2. I think of Jake and Sawyer of being in your heart, and in the hearts of all those who hold them dear…in Evan, in Fletcher, in Alyssa…I could go on and on. I just wish it wasn’t all so hard. Someday we will all understand. In the meantime, I hope you know how much you are loved by others.

  3. Of course, they are in your hearts, wrapped in love. They are with you, you are with them.

  4. I believe that the people we love will always be in our hearts (and minds). My husband was cremated and I have his ashes here at home with me. I like having him near (but that’s just me)… one day I will release him with my ashes (as was his wishes) but for now I hold him close in my heart, my mind, my home and my soul. Nothing is right with death and nothing is wrong in how we honor their memory. Only know that their spirit and love is with us – always.


  5. I think they are always with their loved ones, in our hearts always.

  6. I couldn’t agree more. We always tell the kids Hadley is in our hearts and I like to think she is that close to us always.
