Jacob was kind hearted and always sharing great stories. He was a real Cowboys fan. I will remember him every time I see a Cowboy jersey, or hear a raspy laugh or smell the BBQ. He touched all of our hearts and will always be remembered.

I am sorry it was so many years since we last saw each other, baby cousin. I guess we always thought there would be more time. I was so proud of you when you joined the Navy and am grateful for your service. I love you and we will all miss you until we see you again on the far shore. Until then baby cousin, Fair winds and following seas. Shipmate, the watch stands relieved. We have the watch.

My beautiful nephew will be greatly missed. We love you Jacob for eternity. Not a day goes by that you are not thought of. My tears flow daily although I know Jesus wrapped his arms around you and took you home as he needed another angel. Rest in peace and know you are loved.
