Memories & Candles
Dear Kim, Kent, Katie, and Kerry...Still keeping you all close to my heart, remembering Jake. Elizabeth and I were talking on the way to meet her mother, Ann, 2 weeks ago.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Jake was a unforgettable guy. He was everything you'd want to call a friend or an acquaintance. I didn't know him for very long but he talked to me about his life in the short time that I did. It was pretty difficult NOT to like him. He will be sincerely missed.
I don't care how bad your golf game is, you're joining me for 18 when I join you in heaven. I'll even give you a couple strokes! You and your family are forever in my prayers.
