Dear Judy and Bob, We will always remember precious little Jake playing with Rob as a little boy, and Jake visiting us, showing off his first child that he was so proud of! Rob and Jake were such good friends. Our hearts break for you, and you will be in our prayers for a long time. Love, Beth and Terry Alexander

It was so obvious how much Jake loved Alisha. They had a special bond, love, and friendship that amazed me. I'm glad we got to spend time with them together several months back and I always remember seeing him with a smile on his face. Prayers for the entire family!!
