We were so sad to hear of Jake's sudden passing. May it comfort you to know, in all probability he didn't suffer. May you find comfort in all the good memories you had with Jake all these years. We hope you are able to share some of those memories to ease the pain of his death. Peace & Comfort with Prayers all these days.

You are in our thoughts and prayers and we are all going to miss Jake as well. I don't think we were ever anywhere that we didn't get a shout out from you two. Take care and remember we are just a phone call away.

God bless you
