My sweet Jacob was my only son and was a source of laughter and love for anyone who knew him. He had a larger than life personality and an amazing sense of humor that could bring a smile to anyone’s face. Jacob had so much goodness and a capacity to bring happiness to others. He never wanted to appear weak and often times faced the addiction demon alone. He had done so well and had been clean for years but in the end, it came down to just one bad decision. One that brought us all to our knees. I still can’t believe this is all real. I miss my son, I miss my best friend. My daughters miss their brother and their buddy. Everyone who knew Jacob, even just for a few minutes, lost a shining light in their lives. Our world is a lesser place now that he is gone but we take comfort in knowing that he is finally at peace. We are honored and blessed to have been able to know and love him so much.
Jacob, I miss you bud.
