    Dear Mona, Ryan and family,
    I am so, so sorry for your loss of Jake. I can’t even imagine the depths of your grief, but I am so thankful to know you have the Lord in your life because that is what will get you through. My first memory of Jake is when he and Dawson had their first play date after they met in kindergarten. He was such a doll! And I had Jake on several field trips. I pray for God to wrap you in his arms of comfort. God Bless!
