Jacob, an inspiration and example of strength to us all, left us to be with God a little over a year ago. He possessed the ability and desire to laugh even through the worst kind of adversity. He had the ability to melt the hardest of hearts. We are all richer for having him as a part of our lives. Our hearts still break for having lost him but we know that he is now pain-free and at home where he belongs, with all the other angels. His memory will always be with us along with the valuable lesson he taught us--that life is precious but fragile.
Jacob loved his pony Mojo who seemed to recognize his needs and reacted to him accordingly. Hommer, his dog, protected and loved him as if it were his purpose in life to do so.
The Disney channel captivated Jacob and the TV images became real for him when we visited Disney World in 2003. He met all his favorite characters in person. The light in his eyes and the smile on his face during that visit are some of the most precious memories we cling to. Our lives will never be the same now that we've had the privilege of being a part of his life.
As painful as it was to lose him, we would never trade the opportunity to have known and loved him.
We thank you for the support of this organization and all the friends we made who have always been there for us.
