"Goodby Jacob. I remember all the fun we had in this Beetle. I remember you sItting right there. I feel you. I feel like I'm leaving you because I bought a new Beetle. I know it's not true. You and your brother and I put our thumbs together and pledged whoever was left would "LIVE THEIR LIFE!!" I think of that pledge many times a day. I love you both and miss both of you so."
Love always, Your Mom
I lost my son, Jason, to brain cancer. I lost Jacob because the ER thought he was lying about chest pain and because well, you know, "He has schizophrenia and all people with schizophrenia lie." He died on the ER floor and the hospital wouldn't pick him up off the floor until he was blue. The guards picked him up and dragged his body across the floor.
