My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jake had a heart of gold and I cannot wrap my head around this. We own a shop in town and Jake came by frequently working on his cars, borrowing tools, or just to say hi. He is missed greatly and we keep expecting him to pull in. I am so sorry for your loss and know that we are thinking of you.
