Hi Jake,
Been thinking of you a lot through this Holiday Season. It's hard to believe it's been 2 years yesterday since you started your walk in Heaven with Jesus. You sure are missed by everyone who knew you...more than you could ever know! Your contagious and enthusiastic energy plus your one in a million smile. Don't think anybody who knew you will ever forget how truly special you were. Found some old pictures of me and Rob's wedding the other day. There were several pictures of you and your Momma, smiling as always! Funny how seeing those old pictures of you guys can make me laugh and cry at the same time, kiddo. I really do miss hearing through your Mom what your latest escapades were and what kinda adventure you had planned out next. You never ceased to amaze me with your ability to live your life to the absolute fullest, regardless of being told you had medical limitations. I don't think you ever allowed yourself to have even one thing hinder you! You were an exceptionally loving son, an awesome youngest baby brother, a super loyal friend and faithfully sweet husband. Thank you, Jacob for being such an amazing human being during your all too short time on Earth. You will never be forgotten and always remembered with lots and lots love. Forever in our hearts,
Christina, Rob and The Kiddos

hey jake, it has been quite awhile since ive been here. valentines day came and went. march was cold as usual.zury turned 2 yrs on april 4th. your beautiful name sake. hes so fouuy. he loves any and all cars and trucks. the louder, the better. typical of any true Yorkster. then came your 2nd wedding anniversary, the 7th of april.Jake, for some reason, that was a very hard day for me.i kept thinking of all the things that you could of done,riding your lastest dirt bike, 4 wheeler or truck. sharing that day with your wife. making plans for your future. enjoying time with matt, melissa and zury.reconcilling your and matts hearts. matt is struggling. i pray for him, that peace will enter his heart thru the Holy Spirit and ease his pain. hes started going to church with his family every sunday now.i pray that everyone who reads this letter, remembers that Jesus came and died for each and everyone of us.HE took our punishment for all the sins that we have commited,past,present and the future. if we accept Jesus into our hearts,we will be able to stand before GOD and HE will see us thru HIS sons blood that was shed for us,and HE will by HIS word claim us judged and sanctified. but if we dont claim Jesus into our hearts as the one and only Savior,we will stand before GOD, and HE will see us as we are, dirty filthy rags, and by HIS word, HE'L have to judge and sentence us for each and every sin we've ever commited or thought. we then will lose eternal life with HIM. its so important that everyone understands whats at stake if they dont accept Jesus now. im doing my best to tell as many people as possible. i know you'd help me if you were here with us. well, its trying to be spring. more sun than snow. breakup will come. then our beautiful summer. time for fishing. im excited to be able to go to your favorite site, and get our limit. thank you for that tidbit of info. well son, i,ll leave off for now. you know your always in my heart and thoughts. cant tell you how much i miss you. but we,ll be together soon enough. all my love and smiles for you jake. rest well son,mama loves you always.

hey jake,again its been awhile since i checked in, but here i am.always and forever kiddo.i came across a beautiful song that a nurse sang to me in the middle of the waiting room at Stanford Univ when i went for a second opinion. thought others might think about their faith in God,and all that He provides us with everyday.we are so unworthy of all His grace,mercy and forgiveness,and yet because He loves each of us so much He freely opens His heart,and gives it to us.amazing. well kiddo heres the song she touched my heart with that day when i was so ill. its called His Grace is Greater.

...Well jako, i hope and pray for all who write or read your guest book, that they have a lighter heart than when they started reading.i miss you so much jake.not a single day goes by that i dont look at ur pictures on the wall and wish you were here still.but totally healthy. your cat Tigger is still here. hes 14yrs now.almost totally blind, but he gets around fine.he'l be here with me till i get sicker,then i'll call the vet. same with oso,hes 14yr as well.they've been good and faithful pets. we saw Heather the other day. of course i cried.typical mom. im doing my best to try to read my bible more. just to help build my faith up. i pray and talk to our Heavenly Father. its very comforting to me. i ask at the end of each prayer, if He would just whisper in your ear, how much i love and miss you. i know your getting the messages. well kiddo, its late,you are missed more than the heart can ever say. sleep well my son, til we meet up again,love you so much, your mom.

hey jako, its been awile since i wrote to you. so many things have been happening lately. i believe its the Holy Comforter that Jesus sent us. My heart is still shattered but the pain and emptiness,for the most part is finally doable. The Holy Spirit directs me to passages that help me to start to understand, not know, but to at least open my heart to a deeper understanding of what our Lord wants and expects of us. anyway, i would like to copy down a verse from the bible to you. Its 1 Corinthians cp 13,verse 4-8. Love is patient,love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,does not act unbecomingly;it does not seek its own, is not provoked,does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness,but rejoices with the truth; bears all things believes all things,hopes all things,endures all things. Love never fails. Jake,you showed me what true love is when you married your wife. You knew by heart these scriptures. You tried so many times and in so many ways to show us the true meaning of love. You found it with your wife. im over twice your age, but im starting to see the true meaning, and actually apply it to my everyday life. Its a long process, but for you, like most things in life,came naturally to you. I hope to forever keep learning from your beautiful social graces. You are a great teacher jake. Im so very blessed to have been your mom and your friend. hey, we did the angel tree for you like i promised i would. we picked 3 kids. 3yr to 14yrs. All i can say jake, it was a blast. And i'll continue it for you till God calls me home. Thank you for filling my empty heart with the Christmas spirit this season. Your gifts are never ending. I love you more than anyone could imagine and i always will kiddo. Sleep well my youngest man, till we meet up again. All my love, mom.
