"Mr. Jacobi was a wonderful person to be around! He will be greatly missed! I will never forget when he showed me a picture of his beautiful wife. I asked him how they had met and he told me that he won her in a poker game! He always had the best jokes!"

"Mary & Family: Our condolences and best wishes. We have pretty much lost touch over the years, but who can forget that you two and Kathy & I were married on the same day, many/many years ago. The few times we have seen you folks in recent years the smiles were appreciated and of course how could we miss the BS and rah, rah from the greatest Cardinal fan in the world. God Bless you all.
