We’re so sorry to hear of Jake’s passing. Even though we hadn’t seen him in a while, he was still my “brother.” He’s in a much better place now, knowing that this world has gone insane. We feel your pain, our prayers are with you all. Time will help the void in your hearts; he’s with his mom and brother are grandchildren now. And with Dad!!
Take care of yourselves, knowing someday you’ll join him. God bless you all.

Sorry to hear this prayers for the family. I used to see him at Country kitchen and enjoyed talking to him. I was a truck driver also. I moved to S.C. in 2001 and haven’t seen him in a long time. RIP Jake.
Marty, and family, we are so saddened by the sudden loss of Jake. Paul told us that to live is Christ, to die is gain. Jake is far better off where we all know that he is now, but we will still feel the pain and loss until we see him again. You are in our prayers.
Marty and Family, and Carol; I send my sympathy to you at this time of great loss. Prayers for strength in the days ahead.
