26: "When I think of Jacob, I remember the first day I went to the hospital to see him; I was so nervous, I didn't know what I was going to say or do... I walked up to his incubator and seen my tiny nephew laying there so peaceful, it took all I had not to break down and cry. The nurse came in and had to turn him over onto his back and he let out the tiniest cry, I wasn't even sure of what I had heard. I reached into the incubator and touched his hand, he wrapped his hand around my finger as to say, "never let go" tears rolled down my face as I watched him with his hand in mine. I just kept telling him he had to get bigger so I could hold him. I never got my chance to hold him, but i will always feel his hand around my finger and his memory in my heart." -Aunt Patty
