On July 4th, 2017, Jacob’s family and friends gathered together at Floydsburg Cemetery to celebrate his life and legacy. After singing “Happy Birthday”, nearly 60 balloons were released in Jacob’s honor. The balloons carried a simple note to the finder…“If you don’t talk to strangers, you won’t make any friends”;┬áJacob’s words of wisdom.

If you happened to find this site by finding a balloon, we’d love to hear what you have to say. Please leave a comment below about your reaction, or any words you’d like to offer. We won’t share your email with anyone. Thank you.
