Not sure what to say?

Our deepest condolences to his friends and family. Blessed to have fond early childhood memories on the family’s farm with Uncle Jack, Aunt Ruby, and my cousins. Remember gathering in the living room as Uncle Jack led us in prayer each night before bed. Jacob was a sweet man and married my childhood friend Beatrice. God’s children at their finest!

We went to school with Jacob and he was a very nice, quiet young man and became a very hard working, honest man. May he Rest In Peace.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

y so many. Prayers to all the family whom are grieving at this time.
