I tried putting this on her due date club, but I dont think it work correctly. I am **** trying to figure this all out. Mighty-Mama (Jessica Quinn) passed away early this morning from her battle with breast cancer. Her services will be held on Dec 27th from 6-9pm at Leber-Lakeside funeral home 150 Landing Road, Landing, NJ 07850.

As most of you are aware that Jessica's sister also just passed away and the two of them are looking down and protecting all of our children. I miss her very much and I am unsure how I am going to live my day to day life without her, but I am relieved that she is no longer in pain. Iam so thankful that my sister in law, showed my wife had to access and navigate the mothering website. All the mothers her are wonderful women and I am so glad so many of you were there for my wife, for my children and for me when we needed you so much. For so many of you are scattered accross the united states and the world I am so humbled by your generosity and hope some day that I will be able to meet and repay each and everyone of you in person. Please know that I will continue to be an active Mother/Father on this website, but I not sure if I will keep my wife mighty mama or go with mighty dada as she wanted, either way I know that I will continue to raise my children the we that Jessica and I wanted to raise our children together and I would just like to ask for your continued help as I try to do this by myself.

thank you all so very much
love
mighty dada:

I woke up this morning thinking about your family, and you continue to be in my thoughts. My heart is just breaking for all the loss your family has had to experience this year. I am also glad that Jessica is no longer in pain, and I am wishing for you and the boys the strength to deal with all of this.
Take care of yourself.

Oh I am so glad to hear from you! Please, please keep visiting and posting. We are ALL thinking of you, and would LOVE to have updates, and help you in any way we possibly can. I think "mighty-dada" is perfect!

I was in Amy's due date club for Owen, and I think of her family constantly also. Every now and then I get on the caringbridge site, and am saddened to see no updates from her husband. Jessica came to our DDC and gave us an update about Amy's family one time, and I was so grateful for that.

Take care, and hope to hear from you again soon!

Much love to you and your family mighty dada.



And just so you know...you don't have to be "mighty" all the time. There are people who will hold you up when you fall. When you stumble, it's ok. If you reach out to those who support and love you, you will be even mightier in the long run, (not weaker as it might seem on the surface.)

We are all holding you up in our hearts.

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

I don't recognize your wife's screen name but I couldn't read and not respond. I'm so so sorry for your loss. This is a wonderful community here, don't be afraid to reach out when you need it. May the Lord give you strength to grieve, carry on, and be the awesome Dad that you already are.

Mighty Dada...about the due date clubs...I'm not sure I understand how that works but I think they are temporary and are all closed eventually. You could PM a mod if you have a particular question about that.

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

My thoughts are with you and your little one's.

I hope we can be supportive in many ways to you as you continue on.

How is the milk supply??? I haven't heard in a while. I'm not lactating again yet but I know that is one way MDC Mama's can often help.
