    May you let your light shine just as bright in heaven as you did here on earth Jake. I will never forget all the times you made me laugh, & all the times you made me smile when I really needed one, you were so smart, had so much to live for, & your love for those around you was enormous, you were the life of the party, & had so much life left in you! this just saddens me so much for your family & everyone that loved you here on earth, I hope you had the best 22nd birthday in heaven love & I pray you rest easy & you are able to get the justice that you deserve, you were far too young to leave this world, but only God knows why. I am always forever proud of you for all you accomplished within your time on earth, you will always be remembered for your funny loving kind goofy happy personality. I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve any of this 💔🥺😣
