  • Don and my late husband Alan Jacobsen worked together in the church at the Care Center in Holladay. I met Annette when I married Alan and loved her. She was always such a bright spirit with loving ways. She will be missed. My own health got in the way for me to visit her when she got very sick, but every time I met her she had a smile and a positive attitude. She was an example of strength.
    With love and condolences to the family.
