I remember a few months back, we were laying in bed rambling on about life & what we wanna do, where we wanna go, our past our present. Jacob started to explain how he had fought bone cancer & proceeded to show me the scar in his arm where they replaced it with titanium. He goes “I can go thru a metal detector butt naked & it would still go off” and we had a good laugh. The night before that day, he had a seizure & I’m familiar w them due to my brothers having some case w them, and I can assure you it just doesnt feel real. He was just talking to me about it, Jacob was so strong. Always the life of the party, could fill light in the darkest room. I wish I could kiss your scars one more time. Fly High, to one of now God’s most beautiful angels. ❤️

Jacob had a hard time remembering my dog's names even though he was at my house pretty often for the last few months of his life... he decided to give them his own names, he called them Roxy and Patricia 😁 it still makes me laugh when I look at them and think of those names. Jacob had a great sense of humor; it was one of the first things I noticed about him besides the fact that he is so tall he towers over everyone and when I hugged him I felt like my face went right into his belly button 🥰 miss you forever, Jacob❤️

I remember when we were little and Jacob was always so nice to me and I have so many memories of us getting into all kinds of trouble together. He always included me even though I was a girl, most boys his age probably wouldn't do the same and he had such a kind heart from a young age. The last time we were all together in Texas, me and Jacob took my little sister and his little brother to Dave and Busters and I just remember how easily we were able to catch up even though it had been years since we had seen each other. That was such a fun day and that is how I will remember him, as a great big brother and friend.
