Dear Aunt Betty and Robert, I just learned yesterday of Uncle Jake's passing. Ever since my mom (Joyce Brown) died, I have been out of the family information loop. I wish I could have been there to pay my respects, but please know that I have thought of you all often. I remember listening to Uncle Jake's stories and jokes and being so enthralled by him. Sometimes he even told more "adult" ones in my presence when I was younger, which made me feel so grown-up! I don't remember ever being anything but happy when I was around you guys. I think that is an amazing blessing for anyone. I love all of you and you will continue to be in my thoughts and my prayers.

What a ride you had Jake! Thank you so much for your service!! We were lucky to have you. You made such a impact on this world, with such a grand lady at your side. Betty. You will be so missed but know that God has you in His "Navy" now and what a glorious time you'll have!

How sad to hear of his passing, what a neat 'ol guy! He told me many stories through the years but the one I remember best was about his job painting bridges . . . which didn't last long. 97 years was a very good run. Blessings and Peace to his family - all good folks!
