Me & Jake, December 1958
I miss you Jake. You were my best friend. Not once did I ever consider this scenario for the future. Love always.

There are no words to express how saddened we are by Jake's passing. I know he was a wonderful man and it was always evident how much he loved his family. He was a great neighbor and we all will miss him around here, for sure. I must also say he was such a happy man, thinking of him I am reminded of the "Frosty" song - "A Happy Jolly Soul", that is how we will always remember Jake.

While I didn't know Jake well, his brother Phil has been a lifelong friend and I send my deepest condolences to the entire Brown family.

I will miss my long time friend. We go back to JR. High school and reconnected in recent years and kept in touch.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his bride of many years, his family, that he loved.
I will think of you often Jake and remember the times we spent together!
