I loved you the minute I knew I was pregnant. I loved you the minute you were born. Then I saw your face and fell in love some more. You were only a minute old but I knew I would die for you & to this day I still would. When you choose to have a child you make a conscious decision to allow your heart to walk around outside your body. Then if something happens to that child and you have to bury him a part of you dies with him

Jake was my youngest son who was killed on June 17, 2010. He was 40 years old but still "my baby". Left to tell his story are Mollye and Mike, Jake's mom and step-father; Skip and Jill, his dad and step-mother; his two sisters Lori and Shari, and his brother Buddy.

I hope you will get to know Jake as a person and what an awesome person he was. My wish is that you might leave here feeling just a bit more blessed from reading our memories of Jake our son, our brother and our friend.

The purpose aside from paying tribute to Jake is to honor those who were a part of Jake's life. Friends he loved and friends who loved him and who loved us through our heartbreak. I especially acknowledge in love Jake's Home Depot Family.

Thank You For Visiting Jake's Story and God Bless You, mizmollye

Isn't this a Great picture?

I just ran across this picture taken of Jake a couple of years ago and I just love this image of him. His hair, his tan and he had some "meat" on his bones. He had a cute grin and just looked Happy. What more can I say. No words.


  1. It is a great picture, so handsome.....:-) Hugs

  2. Hey Miz Mollye, I almost fell over laughing at the video/slide show you posted below. I never knew church bulletin boards could be so much fun. You are right, this is a great picture of Jake. He looks so happy and relaxed. I also agree that you reap what you sow. Loved the story from Meemaw that you posted about that. Love you Miz M.

  3. Great picture Mollye. He was a very nice looking young man.
    Hugs to you

  4. Hi...lady! A good person is always more quickly complete the building his royal palace in heaven. His life was short because God more love him!.

  5. Isn't it neat how God blesses us with wonderful little acts of love and encouragement--like you coming across this pic. I can't help but wonder what kind of day or week you were having--what you were doing, what you were feeling when you found it. Wonderful picture. It made me smile back at him.


We are so honored when you take time to comment on something Jake said, did or stood for. Thank You!
