So sorry to hear of Jake's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.One thing we know is Rowlan will be there to meet him in a '32 coupe, listening to the oldies and they'll have a lot of time to share memories of their youth.

Dear Aunt Louise, Wayko and Farrah, I am very sorry for your great loss. I would have been to one of the services but noone told me until our cousin Janet from Delaware called me. I shall remember all of the good times. He always left you smiling. Love, Brenda

I remember many good memories with Jake and his former wife Sheila and my ex-Melvin. I remember he had a great sense of humor. Rest in Peace. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.
