Jacob is such a joy to our family. His last testimony he gave was simply his love for his family. For 4 and a half years Jacob is the best friend to Jordan and helped him while he was sick without ever being asked and never complained. His example of love and service has stood out to us for a long time, but now seems to us to have been one of his main missions here on Earth. I cannot help but think that now he and Colbren will both be serving a mission at the same time Jacob in Heaven and Colbren here. We have also learned about faith. We had faith that the Lord could heal Jacob if he was still needed here, but we also then had to learn that we had to have faith that the Lord needed Jacob to come home. We feel no fear about where he is, for we know we will be with him again. Families are forever, the Savior loves us and sends his tender mercies and angels to us every day if we just look for them. Miracles happen, and we have had many. We are so grateful Jacob had one more miracle left in him so he could donate his organs and tissues so that some other families will not have to go through such a huge loss. Friend to everyone, gentle and loving by nature, joyful by choice, and faithful to the end , we will miss our Jacob but are comforted by the great plan of salvation. Thank you for everything Jacob we love you.
