I remember when she was born. I was 12 . My Uncle Bud took me to the hospital to see Mrcella and my new little cousin. We had to walk up to the nursery door and I got to say Baby Jacobson!! I was very excited. I have many memories of good times down at the cabin on the Mississippi River. She is gone but will never be forgotten! Nancy Parrish
