Joanne and families:
I am sorry to hear about the passing of Jake. I remember seeing Jake out in the yard pulling weeds, planting, whatever he would do outside and he sure did a good job- he just amazed me. I know I haven't seen that now for a couple of years.
Just remember that you are in my prayers and that Jake is at peace and God opened that heavenly gate for him to rest there. Bless you.
