Mr. Jacobi was a wonderful person to be around! He will be greatly missed! I will never forget when he showed me a picture of his beautiful wife. I asked him how they had met and he told me that he won her in a poker game! He always had the best jokes!
I will miss chatting with your dad Michelle when I go see my mom again. Thinking of you and your family and your mom too.
