I can't begin to tell you how very sorry I am about Jake's passing. He was a very special friend to me and I will miss him so very much. I won't come to the memorial service. I've had too many of those in my life in the past few years. I know Jake would understand
I know there is nothing that anyone can say to lessen your grief but maybe knowing that the last breath he took on earth he took his first breath in heaven.

Rest in Peace my friend

Charlee and family, My husband and I met your dad/Jake years ago through mutual friends. . Barbara and Joe. I always loved the way his eyes would sometimes twinkle. And his stories were a bit spell binding.. stories of all his various activities.. He would sing and play guitar, Make me a pallet on your floor.. , play act a train robber...
Later we all ended up meeting again at Restoration Church. He was a valuable member of our church family, keeping it real and adding those wonderful touches of humor .. and getting to the heart of the matter. We all love and loved him as that extra wonderful brother. We will miss him for a while and then see him again. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you and your families. God bless you.
