Jake was a very kind caring gentle man. He wore his heart on his sleeve. Jake was the kind of man that I would be proud to call a father. He loved everything in life, got enjoyment out of the simplest things. Jake was there for my children and me when my father passed away. Even though no one could ever take the place of my father, Jake stepped right in and became family to us. He will be sadly missed.Not a day will go by when i will take time to tell GOD WHAT A WONDERFUL THING HE DID BY BRINGING JAKE INTO OUR LIVES. So sadly missed and loved.

To Butch's family,

I have know Butch for many years. I was his brother David's wife. For the past several years we didn't see each other as much as I would to like to have done. The last time we really got to sit and talk was at our yearly cook out. Butch and the rest of his family were the best. They were careing and generous. I will miss Butch as I do the rest of the family. I am so glad I became part of the family.

If anyone has Vida's address or phone number I would like to get in contact with her, I lost it several years ago. I can be reached by e-mail or phone (940-0074).
