Still so hard to be without you, darling. I wish every day that you could come home. Sometimes it's just too much to bear. Please visit me in my sleep. LYM!

It's a tough time without you, my wonderful husband. I so missed you on our anniversary and now the anniversary of your death is creeping up on me. I never imagined my life without you. I think of you everyday. I still cry everyday. Please help me to make good decisions. I want to live in honor of you. Please come visit me in my dreams. I so miss your smiling face and your gentle kindness and words of support. Please watch over Zack and I. LYM, Darling!

Miss you baby............sometimes it still doesn't seem real that you are gone. I hope that you are proud of Zack and I and how we have tried to live honorably in your memory. Mom recently passed. Please hug each other for me. LYM!

Totally blown away by reading of Fred's passing. It's been way too long since I reached out to see what happened to my old friend. Fred and I roomed together at Phi Delt at Penn and shared great times together. Just thought of him as our beloved Sixers went down on a last second shot yesterday. We played ball together, listened to music, "busted glass" with Tommy and Lon (and Morty), played with Khyber, and did other crazy youthful things. Sounds like he was happy in his life to the end- he wouldn't have it any other way. Condolences to the whole Jacobs family. RIP brother. Love, Frack (Mike Pascavage)
