We have all suffered a great loss with Jacob leaving us. I have so many good memories of him. Even before I went Europe over 40 years ago, our two families would make daytrips around the state. And when I would come from Europe to visit my family in Iowa, more often than not, one of the first people I would see at the airport would be the smiling face of Jacob. What a wonderful welcome that always was. And it was usually with some of his family in tow, an added treat.
It wouldn't be too long before Mary Ann would say, "Jacob, we have to make a trip"! We "made a date", a bunch of us would pile into their motor home, and off we went. It was always a great time with lots of laughs. Now such fun times as are those are at an end. At least I have the memories and they are very precious indeed!
I hope that Jacob knew how much he meant to people. I think he did. Perhaps that is one of the reasons he was always smiling: he made other people feel good!
Jacob, you are sorely missed but it was a great privilege to have known you. We are all better for having known you. People that didn't get to meet you don't know what they missed. All i can say is: the loss is theirs. The world would be a much better place if there were more people like you. Bless you Jacob. You are in my heart, and always will be!
