Jake was a very special, sweet person and I really miss the talks we use to have while I was working at the nursing home. I will never forget how he would talk about trying to figure out if my husband was related some how. He even brought papers to me about relatives to send to my niece in Denver. She does all the research. He will really be missed.

Dearest Jake,
I will miss your kindness, unique laugh, and sweet smile.  You will remain in my childhood memories and heart.  I am comforted by the thought of you riding together with my Poppa Barby, both in your Barby
Rodeo Co red shirts,  and laughing to tears with my Gramma.  
My thoughts and prayers go to your family during this very difficult time.
