Jaco and his father, "grandpa Kilbee" as he was known to me around the house, was very close to us, and like a member of our family, the Hendersons. It saddens me more that I tried finding his info a few months ago, in hopes of sharing lots of time together to talk about my grandfather who passed away years before my birth, my dad, and of course himself and his life, about how much he, his father, and mother Lee meant to us. I can't say how much it meant for me that he stopped by my dad's funeral a little over ten years ago. It would have been just the greatest to have told him in person. Myself and my mom are just about the only ones left to honor his memory for the remainder of the family, and I will make sure to talk about him and his father at every possible opportunity. He is, and will be missed by me very much. Eric
