“Jake, may you always walk in the sunshine and never see the darkness. May you have God’s love all around you and a free spirit with no regrets. Thank you for the happiness you gave us. No one will ever know it broke our hearts to lose you. Jake, you did not go alone…a part of us went with you the day God called you home. A million times we’ve told you we love you…If love only could have saved you-never would you have died.”
