OF YOU IN SILENCE
WE OFTEN SPEAK YOUR NAME
BUT ALL WE HAVE TO REMEMBER
IS YOUR PHOTO IN A FRAME.
Loving Memory of
Jacob Allen Victorino Zeigler
June 6, 2003 ~ December 13, 2003
This is Jacob's second day at Auburn General Hospital
Page 2 of 12
Jacob would cuddle
with mommy, and you could see him get all calm when he
would listen to her heart beating. If she would place
him on the bed or pull him away from her chest Jacob would
get really restless and his little hands would start moving
about. I really don't think Edith noticed what I did,
she was just excited to have her baby boy. She was checking
his feet and waiting for that first dipper change. playing
with his little fingers. I really don't think she seen
how much love, Jacob had for her just in the first few
Grandson's, Tyler James and Jacob Allen.
We came to spend the day with Edith and Baby Jacob during
their second day in the hospital.
took these pictures of her precious grand-boys. What
a happy day!
Jacob was so very sleepy he didn't want to wake up for
any pictures being taken. Tyler looks so very proud!
James was so excited about being a Big Brother.
The morning before we left for the hospital, that was
all we heard about from Tyler James.
This was so new to Tyler and it made him so very proud.
Tyler wanted to bring Jacob home with us, and Mommy could
just stay there if she still was hurting.
He was thinking, I could take care of Jacob at our home
just like we were caring for him.

Mommy & Daddy
has his little Booties on, and is all warm and cozy in
his little one-se.
It was a beautiful warm summer day/night in June and Jacob
got all sprawled out on the bed.
I snapped this Photo 6-7-03, and later when copying a
set of pictures for his album I wrote hi Grandma on the
picture before printing.
This picture was simply known to me as "Hi Grandma."
Now I know it as "Good Bye". We never got to
teach Jacob how to wave goodbye. maybe we didn't have
to, he already knew.
Like Edith and I said when he was born, it seem to us
Jacob new everything about life. things we didn't know.
Why did we both pick up on that feeling? Do baby's know
everything about life when they are born? Then as days
go on forget everything. I know God doesn't make mistakes
he is perfect in every way. But I know my Grandson knew
that I don't know today.
checks to see just how big those feet are. Oh boy such
a little boy with big feet.
Mommy wants pictures of these feet for his baby book.
We found out that it is the Zeigler trade mark. Shane(
father) and Shaun (uncle) have big feet.
a few things Grandma remembers Tyler saying to us before
"Mom, I wont drop him I promise. I wont drop him,
I'll hold him with two hands! Can I feed him this time?
Do we get to take him home? When can he come home. Grandma
can we take Jacob home with us, and bring him back later
to see mommy? Can he be in my bed room?He can watch
cartoons with me! I have a lot of toys, he can have
them! I will watch him,because I'm his brother and that
is my job! My job is to help Mommy get things for my
baby brother! This is my baby brother, I'm his only
brother. Jacob can have my bikes that are too small
for me, okay?
Jacob looks just like me, huh grandma? He has the same
hair, we are the same huh? He has little ears like me
and Mommy, that's cause he is my brother. He is the
best baby in the whole world.
Grandma do you love my baby brother? I love him too,
he is the best brother in the whole world. When he gets
bigger he will go to dog shows like me. He can show
Coal cause Coal is the smallest dog."
he wasn't spoiled at all, maybe he just knew. Maybe, all
he wanted was to always be with you
Jacob was so very sleepy, it
was late at night. Thanks to the digital camera we had,
I was able to get these pictures and with out cropping
or lighting the photos the digital gave us the date and
time of each photo taken. These two were taken at 9:52pm
and 9:53pm on 6-7-03

Shawn kept trying to have his head down as I took the
rest of the these photos of him.
I tired to capture special moments, and the best ones
are when no one knows your there. The best photos are
the ones you don't pose for. That is truly a moment of
your real life in time.
I remember telling Edith weeks
after she will have a spoiled baby from holding him so
Jacob loved to be held, he hated to be put down. Edith
kept telling me that this was her last one, she cant have
anymore, so I have to spoil him.
is Uncle Shaun's Girl Friend so that would make her almost
Auntie Shauna huh?
Here is Shauna helping Tyler James with his
Edith and Baby Jacob 6-7-2003
Mommy & Daddy
little feet look so very sweet. Oh What long legs, by
the age 4 mo Jacob grew into his body so very well.
I wish I could turn back the hands of
time, and know what I know now.
Maybe, I could then change the future, and take your place
In your baby book I will never see, a picture of you holding
a puppy, that really hurts me.
We will never get to hear the laughter in your voice when
you have water fights with Papa, and you win because it's
his choice. I will never get to see you play a trick on
Uncle John. I can visualize you jumping on him, and rolling
summer salts in the lawn.
I can only imagine what you would have been like.
Imagining is just not enough, I miss you in our lives.
Love, Your Grandma V.
photos on this page were taken the second day of
Edith's Hospital stay. Her bedroom was full of
all new baby things for Little Jacob Allen.
The next day Edith and
Jacob would be home with all of us.
Jacob was such a pretty baby. Edith had a C-section,
so he had a nicely rounded head.
Tyler James is sitting on my lap as I'm doing this page
now,Tyler would like me to write,
" Baby Jacob, I Love You! You are the best
baby in the world"
said the long legs, long arms and big feet came from the
Zeigler side of the family.
He took one look at Jacob's feet and said that is a Zeigler
family trait. All Zeigler boys have big feet.
Shaun Zeigler, Jacob Allen and Mommy (Edith)
Shaun didn't want to hold Jacob. Shaun said he was too
small and he didn't know how to hold a baby. So he would
not pick him up for a picture. Uncle Shaun didn't even
want his picture taken but I told him to Look at me, "this
is not what you want, it is what should go in Jacob's

A mother is a person that's always there for you, to hold
your hand, to pick you up to let you know she's true.
A mother is a person that is there when you are born,
she is there to love and kiss you, to keep you nice and
A mother is that special one that brightens up your day,
all her loving, caring moments are just a memory away.
A mother is the one you count on though the years she
is the one you'll call, to help you dry your tears.
mothers love is everlasting, the kind you always seek.
She will hold your hand and smile at you when she grows
old and weak.
Your mother's love will be there long after she is gone,
it is what has kept you, so very nice and strong.
The strength you have to keep on going, the life you have
to live, gives a new meaning to a mothers love,
that now you'll have to give.
Edith, I wrote this today especially for you, I thought
of Grandma Brundage, then passed this on to you,
It makes a mothers chain, the one that's never broken,
this I know is true.

will never be able to bring Jacob with me anywhere,
and hear someone say how darling or precious he is.
I will never hear the words "your little boy is
so polite. So please take just a little time and see
my grand-baby Boy. I would love for you to see my Grandson,
Jacob Allen. This is the only way I have to let anyone
ever see what we have lost.

he grew in the short 6 months of his life.
