Letter from Ed Roberts about Jacob
I don’t have the words. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I I have dreaded this week so much, yet longed for it to come so that we could move past this hurdle.
You know and I know how well Jacob looks, but the truth is without this surgery he will not make it much longer. I can not describe to you what it feels like to say that as a father of this beautiful boy. His little heart is working overtime to keep up with everything. It would be like you holding a stack of books on one arm stretched out in front of you. Yes you could hold them and maybe even look good like Jacob has so far, but very soon your arm will drop and the books will fall unless something is done. That’s what this surgery is all about. Jacob needs help and he needs our prayers. My family needs your prayers. Could you have our listeners pray and be aware of what is going on today. I want to bring him home and I’m afraid. I love you guys.
