    My sincere condolences to the Jacobson family on the loss of Hyman. I was his “7:30am” nurse who would change his dressings. Days that I was to see him were always the best because I was greeted like I was an old friend! Such a gentleman..always pleasant even if he was hurting. Just the thought of him makes me smile. Peace to you my buddy!

    Bobbie and family, I had the joy of knowing Hy from working as a concierge at Tamarisk. He was such a joy to talk with. He was one of my favorite residents. Please except my condolences.

    Hy was just an absolute gentleman. I am honored to have been able to care for him and be part of his life for a moment in time. I would sit with him and talk about life and it made me feel as I had a part of my dad as they were both of the “greatest generation”. We laughed, we even cried together and he will be a part of me forever. I am so sorry for your loss. Just an amazing soul.
