My brother-in-love, Kirk Jacobson is here this week on a business trip from Canandaigua, New York, so he stopped in for a visit for a few hours. Since we live on opposite ends of the country, our visits are too few and far between. It is always a treat to see him. It just made me really homesick for my sister, Dana! And my 4 neices and nephews. And that I don't get to be in Hawaii when nephew Danny gets married later this month to the darling Danielle of Alaska.
Kirk and Dana got married when Melissa was just 18 months old so he has watched her grow up and he has always been one of her favorites.

When Nick was born 6 months later, Kirk and Dana saved Melissa's life (and Nick's) by letting her spend the weekend with them in San Diego. More than once. [ Melissa had a bit of an adjustment problem with her new brother, that included feeding him a bologna and cheese sandwich, piling all the quilts on him in his crib, and sitting on his tummy while scratching his face--- just to name a few----all within a day or two when Nick was just 2 weeks old.]

Since then, Melissa and Uncle Kirk have always had a special relationship. And I have always been grateful to he and Dana for saving all our lives back then. It was wonderful to see him!!!
