Dear JC
I was deeply saddened to hear the sad news about Mary. Next to my mum, she was the most gentlest person I had the privilege to meet. We met for a short period in NF, during Anna’s illness, but it seems we have known you for long while. I will pray that God give you the strength to carry on and to comfort you.

Dear Dr,. Jacob,

Dear Uncle JC

Aunty Mary was a cousin to my Mom who also had the name Mary and through my Mom we have heard of the wonderful times they used to have at get togethers and the rich family heritage that they experienced. As for us we always fondly remember Aunty Mary when ever we met her in Colombo and when she visited Edmonton. Her genuine love and smile shone through.

Please accept our deepest condolences and may our God of all Comforts console you and shower His Grace on you.

Dr. Jacob.
Sorry to hear of your wife’s death.Thinking of you at this time.

Hoyles Home was a wonderful place to work in the 1970’s and 80’s, with so many fine and caring staff, Mrs. Jacobs amongst them. She was a lovely person, someone who was always positive in outlook and always respectful of residents and colleagues alike.

I am so sorry to learn of Mrs. Jacob’s death.

Dear JC anna., Our heartfelt condolences on the passing away of your beloved wife Mary. I came to know her and you, very well in a short space of time during my brother Jothi’s illness and thereafter. Her faith in our Lord and her kind words was an inspiration to us all. She was no doubt a source of strength to so many people both near and far. She will be missed very dearly. With love and prayers. Shanthi and family (Saskatoon).

My sincerest condolences to Mrs.Jacob’s family. I recall with joy and appreciation her gentle wit and calm presence. Seeing her smile during choir practice was a highlight for me of worship at the Kirk.

My condolences,Mary and I were colleagues in the 1990s
