The Story Behind Jace's Name - Part 1 of My Father's Day Tribute

Jace Michael Fredrick Wescott Prespare

The older I get the more I realize how grateful I am for the Life
lessons and the memories that people in my family have given to me. I have been blessed with several Incredible roll models, both male and female.
Jace’s name, as long as it may be, is
A tribute to the most important Men in my family.
Jace is a combination of names.
James, who is the best Father
Any girl could ever ask for, Daddy taught me that there are two sides to every story and to try not to be judgemental of others, a lesson I try to use in my daily life.

And Cecil, who was my beloved Grandfather, who could turn a simple trip to the garden into a wonderful story about any life circumstance. Michael is for my older brother, Who always puts his family first.
He is one of the most generous and loving men that I have ever known. Fredrick was my Papa. Papa always made me feel like I was his special girl. I always felt like a Princess when I was with Papa. Wescott is my family name. A name that I am very proud to have. And last but not least, Prespare. Earl has shown me a love that I never new existed.
Earl is my best friend and soul mate.
The man that I am so very proud to be with.
I also have a younger brother, Danny, who I am not leaving out. Danny truly amazes me with his boyish curiosity and how incredibly intelligent he is, but I have already named a son after him, my 4th son, Daniel.

Earl and I hope to raise Jace to be every bit as wonderful as the men that he has been named after are and were. Jace is our little miracle baby, a baby that will be loved and cherished and deserves to be named after truly memorable men.
