Pam & Dexter you raised a warm gentle & kind son. Anytime I saw him no matter where even if I didn’t see him, he would always come & hug my neck! When he got taller he would hug me & kiss me on top of my head. Jacob will be a great miss! Sending much Love & Prayers. Pam you’ve got one more guardian Angel watching over you all! Again I love you guys very much!! God Bless
