We recently made an unexpected and sad trip to Port Angeles. My cousin, Jacob Bird, shot himself; he was 16. We made the trip over the mountains and into some of the most beautiful country on earth. It was a sad occasion but worth the trip to reunite with family and share our lives with one another. The memorial was perfect and gave people an appropriate way to say goodbye to an awesome young man. He will be dearly missed and held closely in our hearts for all our days.
