Condolence & Memory Journal


Dear Bob and Katy,

It does my heart good to know you two are no longer apart. From the time Katy passed I could see it in your eyes whenever you stopped in. Still it was always good having you stop by to chat and I already miss that. God be with you.

So sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of the Jacobys at Crooked Lake and Captains Cabin.

Deepest sympathy to Bob's family. It was so good that I was able to visit with my cousins and their spouses a few years back when Aunt Bernice was here in Fort Wayne. I have fond memories of our annual visit with the Jacobys at Crooked Lake in the summer. Those were the days - cottages and out houses. LOL. Thinking of you all as you remember and share all of your fond memories.
Love Susan and Terry Alexander
