I did not know Jakob but my grandson and son-n-law Grayson and Noble Guedon had meet him. Twenty four years ago on May 18 I lost my son and want to say how sorry I am for your loss. My heart is very heavy knowing the pain you and your family are going through. Just know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
