Update - Baby Amelia & Her Daddy

So many have asked about Amelia and her daddy and how they can help.  The overwhelming love, concern, compassion, and interest has been such a comfort to all of us. 

A web page/blog has been created in Amelia's name to inform and direct those who have been asking how they can donate to the Amelia Bourque-Black Memorial Fund:

*A PayPal button is available at the address above and on my upper right sidebar for online donation.  When you click on the button, you will be taken to a page to specify the amount you would like to gift to Amelia. After typing in the amount, click on "update total." You will then be taken to a page to log into PayPal and complete the transaction. If you don't have a PayPal account, it is quick and easy to set one up at PayPal.com.

*A post office box address for mail or donations is:
Jacob Black
PO Box 87202
Canton, Michigan 48187
All checks should be written to the Amelia Bourque-Black Memorial Fund.

*Donations may be made directly at any PNC Bank branch to the Amelia Bourque-Black Memorial Fund.

*The wonderful folks at Plymouth Roc (formerly Boulders) in Plymouth, Michigan is hosting "It Takes A Village" fundraiser for our precious granddaughter Amelia. As most of you know, our son Jacob lost his beautiful wife Jenni two days before Christmas after the emergency delivery of their baby girl Amelia. The event will be this Saturday, January 8 from 8:00 p.m. to Sunday 2:00 a.m. Address: 1020 W. Ann Arbor Road, Plymouth, Michigan. If any of you happen to live near Plymouth Michigan please stop in to enjoy some good music, good food, and good company - all for a good cause.

Gosh, there are a lot of wonderful folks in the world!  THANK YOU!!!

I've had you on my mind a lot my sweet friend. How are you doing? I'm praying for your family, especially your son.

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter-in-law, sweetpea. I can't even imagine the sadness your son and you are going through at this time. My heart goes out to all of you. We recently had an acquaintance whose hubby died suddenly while 5 months pregnant and it was so tragic. I wish you many blessings this year.

Sweet Precious Friend,Amelia is absolutely angelic and beautiful. What a gift Jenni gave to Jacob, this little angel that will grow up to adore her Daddy. I know both their journey will be lonely without Jenni, somehow God will help them to put one foot in front of the other together as they move forward in life. The day that Amelia was born, earth gained an angel; and heaven gained a new one the same day when Jenni went to be with the Lord. I'm so glad this fund is set up - I want to be a part of it. I'll be talking to my husband and will let you know real soon. You are in both my heart and prayers, and so are Amelia and Jacob..will be in touch by email soon. Love you friend!

I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your lovely daughter-in-law. That is so hard for those left behind. Something similar happened to cousin of mine years ago when his wife died during childbirth. Amelia will grow up with lots of love around her. God be with you as you all continue to heal.
