As a friend and neighbor of Jake's, I know all about his love of his grandchildren
and his love of softball because Jake shared his many memories with me in
wonderful conversations. I am sorry to learn of his passing as I know how loved
Jake was. I also believe he is still sharing those wonderful memories and colorful
stories. Our condolences to the his family and friends.

Uncle Jake... So many memories growing up. He Always teased me with that grin
that only Uncle Jake had. He always made me feel special, and when I chose to not
remain Amish, he loved me just the same as before, which meant more to me than
anyone can know. Will see him again one day when its my time to go, and in the
meantime I am sure he is blessing heaven with his smile. Always a smile.
