Mr. Joe, Mrs. Joanne, Joanna, Michelle, and Suzette, my family and I are deeply sorry for your loss. We've known Jake since Joanna and Jacob were married and really enjoyed being around him. My husband, Trae, was there when he killed his first deer while hunting with Jacob and Bryan. He was always nice and sincere when he would come to the house with the Canezaro crew and played with my son and GG and Maddi. He will be missed. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
