  2. Word can not say the loss you feel. Jake was a good man husband and father. He will be missed by all that knew him. He touched many lives in his brief time with us all. 38 is to young to be called home to our lord and he truly does work is ways we don’t understand. Jake leaves behind many friends that will miss him but none more than his family that he loved with his whole being. He is gone but shall never be forgotten. God be with you. RIP Jake your memory lives on.

  3. I had the opportunity to meet Jake last year at Riccelli, he was a pleasure to work with. Always making us laugh. I remember when we had a meeting at the beginning of the season and just cracking up at stuff he’d said to our lil group. Jake always had a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed. I am so very sorry for his family’s loss.

    If Tomorrow Starts Without Me…

    If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see,
    If the sun should rise you find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
    I know how much you love me, as much as I love you
    And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
    But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.
    He said my place was ready, in heaven far above
    And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
    But as I turned and walked away a tear fell from my eye.
    For all my life I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die.
    I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do.
    It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones and the bad.
    I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
    If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,
    I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
    But then I fully realized that this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
    When I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow
    I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.
    When I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home.
    God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne
    He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you”
    Today your life on earth has passed but here life starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last
    And since each day is the same there’s no longing for the past.
    You have been so faithful so trusting and so true.
    Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.
    You have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.
    So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?
    So when tomorrow starts with out me don’t think we’re far apart,
    For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.
