The Jacobsons

Robins called me from the office and told me the following news! One of the Jcobson got kidnapped!! We know the family very well and they are good friends. They are "well to do" business family. They own the hotels in Central America and also shrimps farms. Molly Jacobson is the mother. She passed a way in Guatemala at late 90 year old. I love her. She was part of my life! I said that because "she is the one who teach me how to make different sandwiches".. We were togethere at women activities. I saw her every week at the church. I had a good time in Guatemala and I do have wonderful friends there.

Once Christmas, Robins was a way (because of shrimps sick, I think), Molly called me and said "Helen, Christmas is a family time come and join the lunch with us".. On that day, Molly had the most gorgeous Silva Wears that she decorated elegantly. I had a good time with most of the Jacobsons. Yes..when people do something good to me, this will be in my heart forever. I care so much about her thought and kindness.

I thanks the Lord for Tom came out a live! If Molly is alive, she might be very thankful of her son is no harm.

Kidnappers free US hotelier abducted in Honduras

2 hours, 32 minutes ago

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras - Authorities say a U.S. hotelier kidnapped a week ago has been freed.

Security Vice Minister Mario Perdomo says 55-year-old Thomas Jacobson was released by his captors Saturday in Copan, about 250 miles (400 kilometers) west of Tegucigalpa, the capital.
He says he doesn't know if a ransom was paid.

Perdomo said Sunday that the businessman "is at home ... and in good health."
Four gunmen accosted Jacobson Sept. 20 as he was getting into a car with his young son at his Gran Hotel Sula on the Atlantic Coast. The son escaped.

Jacobson has lived in Honduras for 15 years. Authorities did not release his hometown in the U.S. He is among at least 40 businessmen who have been kidnapped in the country so far this year.
