A little tribute true and tender, Just to show that we remember. Time may pass and fade away But memories of you will always stay....


This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Jaxton who was born on December 29, 2008 and passed away on June 2, 2009. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.





Jaxton the only thing worst than losing you, would have been never having had you .

We love you mommy and daddy








On the day God took you
I thought that I would die
I wondered where the time went?
I asked alot of whys??
With people all around me
I felt alone inside
From all their words of comfort,
I couldn't seem to hide,
I thought I might be dreaming
That I'd wake and find you here,
I thought "This can't be happening."
As I wiped another tear.
On the day that you were laid to rest
My heart broke yet again,
I wondered if the pain would end,
But mostly, I wondered when??
It's hard to be without you,
At times the days seem long,
Sometimes I just sit crying,
When there's really nothing wrong.
I wish we'd had more time,
Before your life was done.
I hope your resting peacefully,
My precious one 







Dear Friend,
Please be patient with me; I need to grieve in my own way and in my own time.
Please don't take away my grief or try to fix my pain. The best thing you can do is listen to me and let me cry on your shoulder. Don't be afraid to cry with me. Your tears will tell me how much you care.
Please forgive me if I seem insensitive to your problems. I feel depleted and drained, like an empty vessel, with nothing left to give.
Please let me express my feelings and talk about my memories. Feel free to share your own stories of my loved one with me. I need to hear them.
Please understand why I must turn a deaf ear to criticism or tired clichés. I can't handle another person telling me that time heals all wounds.
Please don't try to find the "right" words to say to me. There's nothing you can say to take away the hurt. What I need are hugs, not words.
Please don't push me to do things I'm not ready to do, or feel hurt if I seem withdrawn. This is a necessary part of my recovery.
Please don't stop calling me. You might think you're respecting my privacy, but to me it feels like abandonment. Please don't expect me to be the same as I was before. I've been through a traumatic experience and I'm a different person.
Please accept me for who I am today. Pray with me and for me. Should I falter in my own
faith, let me lean on yours. In return for your loving support I promise that, after I've worked through my grief, I will be a more loving, caring, sensitive, and compassionate friend-becauseI have learned from the best.

Thank you for the outpouring of well-wishes, prayers and support for Dan, Misty and Gage.  During a time as difficult as losing a young child you cannot have enough family and friends to lean on.  Jaxton was a beautiful young boy with an infectous smile that will be missed by many people, especially his parents and brother.  We will never forget the time we spent with Jaxton or the emotional week we shared together.
Thank you for all of your donations we received for the memorial tree and engraved marker to honor Jaxton Plathe.  Memorial trees are one of the most meaningful ways to express your sympathy. While flowers fade, the thought of a young tree being planted for someone will last a lifetime.  Anyone that visited Dan and Misty's house noticed the bare spot in their front lawn were a large tree once stood.  That tree was damaged in a storm a few years ago.  Dan and Misty had planned on replacing the tree this summer so in many ways this will be the perfect gift for them.
Once the tree and engraved stone marker are planted and in place we will have Dan post pictures to the website so everyone can see the living memorial for Jaxton Daniel Plathe.
Thanks again for all of your support and God Bless.
Jamie Gipple and Jerry Plathe
