What a kind, generous, intelligent and thoughtful man uncle Jake was. Although we were many miles away out east you always had a feeling when you saw him he had everything under control and was living an extraordinary life. Uncle with auntie Edna brought up a great family and his legacy I am sure is being passed onto Cole.
Remembering the "free" A&W teen burgers and root beer in simpler times in the peg!
All our best the Balzer family in Windsor
