Brenda & Mike, we don't know each other but my grandson Andy & Jacob played on XBOX with each other. I have watched the light go out in Andy's eyes and I feel so sorry for him and all I can do is be there for him. He misses his friend terribly. You and your family have our deepest sympathy. As Andy said "it really sucks." Grieve for now and may God be with you.

I know that not one sorry can make you feel better but I wanted to say that I am so so sorry, sad, and heart broken for what happened to your baby. I saw the flowers on Tapo st. while going to fresh and easy and I had to wait 10 minutes before going in because tears just started flowing from my eyes. You are in my prayers. God will get you through this. Also please give Jacob's little brother a big hug for us all.

My deepest prayers for you and your family...I can't even imagine what you're going through as a parent myself. I also would like to know if the family would be interested in having a benefit night at my work so we can donate towards anything you may need. I work at Tgifridays and if someone could contact me and let me know if we can help out please. And thanks sxbsmom@yahoo.com

My grandchildren and I stopped by the sight early Sunday morning and prayed for your entire family. As a Mother my heart is broken for you. I do know this, in our darkest hour, God comforts the broken hearted. May he comfort you everyday that you live without your Son and may you daily feel his loving arms around you.

Thank you all for you help support and comments. You mentions and support mean more to us than words will ever be able to say. It's impossible to respond to such an outpouring of pray love and support personally however We are reading the messages, have visited the memorial at the corner and the many posts on Facebook and associated groups. On behalf of our family god bless and thank you!! The little boy with Jacob is one of my sons and like Jacobs step brother. He was saddened to be named a friend. I prefer to keep his name anonymous at this time.

My daughter was walking on Alamo and passed by your son and his friend on their bicycles. She was singing and he looked at her. She waved to him and he waved back. Our hearts are heavy with grief. He is all that we have thought and talked about this weekend. My condolences to you and your family. Life does not make sense and losing someone as young and loving as your son is tragic.
