Jake & his brothers

3 sons =  2 veterans + 1 teacher

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

& earth

My oldest son, Jacob Samuel Siefert, died on October 20, 2005. While hunting with his dad and uncles in Colorado, a celebration for a safe return from an Iraqi deployment with the Texas National Guard, he hit a tree at dusk. As his dad and uncles came over the hill, just minutes behind him, they spotted the four-wheeler he was riding, mangled, up against a tree.  Jake lay in a depression just off the curve in the road. He was lifeflighted to Grand Juction, He lasted, unconscious for about 12 hours. He was 27.

He was my dreamer.

St Mary's Medical Center

in Grand Junction took care of Jake.
At no charge.
Because that is where their heart is.
