Every child is special and Jake was no exception. He almost always had a smile on his face. He loved the simple things like lights, fans, frogs, spiders and lizards. He loved giving hugs, knew no anger, lies, hurt, or any of the negative emotions we encounter each day. He was a perfect soul in an imperfect world.
Then Thanksgiving weekend, on Saturday November 30, 2013 just before 6pm, the last words ANY parent ever wants to hear "Where's Jake?" Jake slipped out the back door in the pitch dark and fell off the dock into the intracoastal.
