My Daughter Robin
My daughter Robin passed away January 11, 2018. 
She is missed so much by everyone who knew her and whose life she touched, 
She would be so proud of her two children who are both graduating this year. 
Olivia from High School and Alec with an MBA in Business from Hofstra. 
We miss her so much and we keep her memory alive each time we talk about her! 
I am blessed to be close to them, and be a part of their lives .
– Sheila Frank
Alan Ross Jacobs: January 30, 1986 to January 10, 2015 
Even though you were taken from us, you live on in my heart. 
Memories of your too-short life fill my thoughts.
Pictures of you surround me.
You will always be my baby boy, and I will always yearn for your voice, the twinkle in your eyes, the sound of your guitar, your hugs.
Missing you has become as much a part of me as breathing. 
That’s the price I must pay for loving you so dearly.
– Linda Comac
ALEX this would have been a special year
You would have been fifty years old
Alas, you are not here with us
But your story will always be told
We’ll never forget how you lived on earth
Many a person would always say
You forged ahead and with your disease
It didn’t get in the way
You traveled, loved your work, and always had many a friend
But most of all you inspired your mom
Our bond will never end.
– Andrea Hanan
