I absolutely loved Jacob. I took care of him for 2 years while he was at Heartland then when it became Prestige Gardens. We shared a birthday and formed a friendship. He was one of my favorite people i have ever met in my life and i am beyond thankful to have had the opportunity to know and care for him. My thoughts are with your family.
