    I’m so sorry for your loss, Melanie and Jack. Jared and I worked together at Target for many years and two things that were abundantly clear: his love for you, Melanie and his excitement to become a dad and then the sheer happiness he displayed when Jack arrived. Sending you prayers and comfort from an old Target friend.
    With love,
    Stephanie
