  1. Judy and family,
    I was a friend and neighbor of Jake’s in Snyder
    a long time ago. What a great guy he was then, and, from the testimonials above, obviously still
    was. I remember a lot of evenings sitting on
    the grass of his grandmother’s house and sharing
    stories and dreams together. I pray that God
    will give you grace, peace,and comfort in the
    days ahead. You, Jared, and the rest of your
    family will be in my prayers. God Bless You.

  2. Dear Judy and family,
    I never had the pleasure of meeting you, but I knew Jake and his family all my life and we graduated from school together. Jake’s mother and my mother taught school together. Jake was a nice young man and he carried on the legacy as a good husband, father, grandfather and friend after reading all the wonderful words expressed about him.
    God Bless you and your family Judy and comfort you. Good memories and prayers, Cheryl Collins

  3. Judy and family,
    I worked with Jake a lot at Pantex and remember bothof you from Covenant Presbyterian. I was saddened to hear from Marge and Bev that he was sick and not doing well but am glad you are believers and know that you and Jake’s sufferings are over. He is in a happy place with the Lord. Blessings and prayers of comfort to each of you. John & Mary Jennings

  4. Dear Judy and family,
    I do not know either of you, but I grew up across the street from Jake and his family all my school years in Snyder. I am so saddened to hear of his homegoing, but most thankful to know of his faith in Jesus. May our Lord be ever close to you in these days. I have many fond memories of our childhood…we had some great times.
    God bless you deeply, Docena Howarton Moore

  5. Dear Judy,
    We do not know each other, but Buddy and I were classmates of Jake at Snyder High School so many years ago…and yet such a short time ago. Jake was a good guy as a teenager and it seems he continued being a good guy. We just want to say we are saddened at his death, but so happy that he belonged to the Lord. You and your family will be in our prayers for the Holy Spirit to guide and comfort you until you are reunited with Jake. Blessings, Buddy and Sheila Shaw
