Jacob Memorial Video 2009



Six years ago today we held the funeral for my brother Jacob. On that day I shared a video I put together of some moments from Jacob's life, growing up, his artwork, his skating etc. The video contained some wonderful photos and video taken by family and friends. I also included some footage I started shooting with Jacob for a short film that I never finished.

I have since made a few changes and added a few more clips. So for those of you who knew Jacob, I hope this brings back some good memories.

Hi precious Nathan and Ashlie,

I loved watching this again. Jacob was such a beautiful soul...both inside and out. I'm so glad you posted it.
Just two days ago I posted my feelings about accepting Preston's death. I'm not sure when you will read this, but I'm referring to the post about Grandmother, titled, 'And the Heavens Were Opened...', but you'll need to scroll to the end of the post (where I changed the font to red) to read what I'm referring to. It involves a quote your dad shared with me. : )
Love you,
Mary Lou

Thanks Nathan. This is a beautiful tribute to your brother. A few weeks ago I came across Jacob's smiling face among some newspaper clippings I've saved and I wondered how you and your family were doing. Thanks for sharing this!
