Jacob

Our little Jacob was hit by a car tonight and we are all quite traumatized. Please pray for our girl family and he was our fuzzy source of joy.

The house is eerily quiet. There is a deep sense of loss that surrounds us now. Though it has been less than 24 hours... I don't know what to say. We feel so lost with out him. Bursting into tears at the thought of him. He was more than just our pet he was our friend. It seems silly at the amount of tears shed, but there is something deep that is happening and right now we are raw and hurting. It is as if a family member has died. Words cannot describe what Jacob meant to us.

It is amazing how a little ball of fur can affect you. My thoughts are with you all.

I'm sorry to hear that Sherry, my eyes fill with tears at the thought of losing my Max. It's incredible how much you can love your pets isn't it?

Wow....I had no idea that giving him to your home would impact all of you so much! God was obviously in control there!

I am so sorry for your loss. Maybe God will give you a new cat soon.....
Jacob was cool! I'm glad that our family got to know him too! You guys are all great. Hang in there. God is our comforter
