Jacob Packard

May 3, 1977April 25, 2010

Family and friends are invited to share remembrances in the celebration of Jacob Ryan Packard's life on Friday, April 30, 2010. Join us at Greenoaks Funeral Home Chapel, 9595 Florida Blvd. Visiting begins at 9 a.m., with a memorial service to follow at 2 p.m. Soul mate to his wife, Angelique Monique, best friend to his daughter, Fallon Rachelle, and superhero to his son, Ryan Zain, Jacob was lovingly and wholeheartedly devoted to his family. As first born, on May 3, 1977, to James Arthur and Virginia Miller Packard, he taught his mother and father how to become parents as the son who spoiled his parents. Idolized by younger brothers Jared Arthur and James Henry Packard, Jacob endlessly teased that he was the one who had to endure their parent's learning curve so they could enjoy their freedoms. With his sudden departure on Sunday, April 25, 2010, he eternally joins his admired and beloved grandparents, Alfred E. and Theresa M. Miller, Ann S. Euwer and John Jacob Packard Sr. He was appreciative of the opportunity to continue his education and further his career as a plumber for Thibodeaux Plumbing Co., where he valued being a member of this extended family. Too many to list, but lovingly acknowledged are numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, neighbors and friends who were touched by Jacob, and who deeply feel his loss. As a donor to the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency, Jacob's essence will continue to live among us, generously helping others as was his nature. Jacob Ryan Packard lived as a simple kind of man. He will always live in the hearts of and be forever cherished by all who were fortunate to truly know him.

Daddy, I love you so much and things are still so unclear to me and I know that its going to be that way for a long time. I cant imagine going on without you. Its by far going to be the hradest thing I have ever had to do. You were and will always remain by BEST FRIEND.I love you more than any daughter can love their father. I really believe that. Im going to make sure that I inherit the amazing qualities you had as a parent and as a human being and use them to better myself as a person. I always wanted to be like you dad. No one will ever be able to make me laugh like you could or teach me the way you did. Thank you. Thank you so much. There are so many unanswered questions. You taght me so much and I only wish I had the oppertunity to learn more from you. You were a simple kind of man daddy, but you were so, so much more to me. I love you and I miss you terribly. Oh and Happy late birthday daddy. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know that you haven't heard from me in years, but I have always held you and your family in very high regard. The Jacob I new was a fine young man who loved his family and his car.

you are the epitome of an older brother. I learned so much growing up under you and the love and respect I have for you is unbounded. You taught me more than you ever knew and I am thankful for every second I got to spend under your wing. I love you and miss you with all my heart and soul.

Dear Virginia, Jim and Family,
Just yesterday I googled your address and phone number to plan a visit since I have returned to Louisiana. I was shocked to see the newspaper article.

My love and prayers to you my dear cousins, Christine Russo Lorensen
