As a parting memory of Edmond, the family wishes to share a school paper, written by Edmond’s grandson, Jon, who wrote this when he was approximately seven years old:
“Someone Who is Great” My grandfather is a very, very nice grandparent. All of my life, he has cared for me and has gave me very valuable things. My grandpa talks on a radio for a short time every day (almost). He takes me to the doctor if I am sick to get medicine. My grandpa takes me to a dirt bike track every other Sunday – even knowing how much gas is. He helps me work on it too, (my dirt bike.) He has bought me oil and gas for my dirt bike to. My grandpa is a very great man and I don’t know how to ever repay him. My grandpa helps me wash my dirt bike when I am at my mom’s house and he puts it in the garage. When I am putting my dirt bike clothes on, he loads my dirt bike on the trailer. By the way, he was born September 23, 1939. My grandfather’s maiden name is Edmond J. Jaco, Cr. He is a very tall man. He is a construction worker for Niles Construction and Cement. He wears blue jeans and a button shirt. He wears glasses and a company hat every day to. He wears these clothes because it is pretty much a uniform for work. Also, my grandpa is 66 years old. This is all I now about my grandfather.”
