Weeks later, Jacob’s dad Rodger tells Amy Wood, Life Without Jacob is a daily struggle.

Home videos of Jacob’s final first day at school, painful reminders of what’s been taken from them forever.

The superhero funeral for Jacob, just days after he died in the hospital puts a smile on Hall’s heartbreak. But still the sadness can be overwhelming.

Hall tries to cope through tatoo art. Artistic work that he places on his left arm, because it’s the one he drives with and will see more.

The pain is deep and raw, so tough the family had to move. Rodger Hall says they just can’t go back to the place they were renting. “it’s not home anymore, because he’s not there, Rodger Hall told WSPA-TV.
