    Jacob – I truly miss you, my sweet friend. You were always so funny, kind and had a big heart. You were one of a kind and I will not forget you. I miss our daily messages. I’ve found myself with things I wanted to tell you this past week, then it hits me that I can’t. My heart hurts for your parents and I will continue to pray for peace and comfort for them. They have both been on my mind so heavily. Rest In Peace, Jacob.

    I send my deepest condolences for you and your family. Having lost someone is a difficult moment of life. May God provide you the strength you need to cope with this difficult situation. At Acts 24:15 and John 5:28, 29 the Bible promises a future hope of seeing our loved ones again very soon. Psalm 37 :9-11 and 29 brings out where we will be able to be with them again!To learn more visit jw.org. My deepest sympathies 🌺
