Dear Sya and children,
May you find peace and comfort through family and friends and most of all may almighty God give you His peace.

Uncle Jake- the man with the strength in his hands of many men. The man who loved his family with the most beautiful loving heart. He loved small children, wee huming-birds, and... dogs more than cats. All creatures - great and small were appreciated by him. His heart ached for the sad, lonely, lost and the unfortunate. He loved his Lord most of all* This was his compass. He has "graduated" into Glory.
