Brother Love

Jacob didn't miss a thing on his older brother's wedding day.

Joseph surrounded by all this brothers and sisters at his wedding.  See if you can tell which one is Jacob.

When my son Joseph got married his younger brother Jacob was serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Bolivia.  Joseph and Jacob were born only 18 months apart and grew up together.  They did everything together. 

Jacob left for his mission before Joseph got home from his mission to Montreal Canada.  That meant that they would be apart for almost 4 years.  They really missed each other.

Because Joseph didn't want to leave Jacob out of his wedding, he made a life-size cardboard guy with Jacob's face and dressed him in real clothes.  On his wedding day we took "Jacob" everywhere with us so he didn't have to miss a thing.

Such ingenuity to do that! Glad that Jacob was able to "attend" the big event.
