As some of you may (or may not) know, our first-born, four-legged baby Jake passed on a few weeks ago after a long battle with cancer. It was a very difficult time for us; I don’t recall having cried so hard in many, many years. And just when I thought I had grieved all I could grieve, I found myself missing him even more yesterday. He was so young, only seven years old, and was the best, most loyal friend anyone could have. Jake was not only our baby and a true, loyal friend, he was our protector and companion. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about how lucky we were to have him in our lives and in our hearts. Jake is, and always will be, a part of us…a part of our soul. And if there are dogs in the after-life, I feel certain that Jake will be there waiting for us to hold him once more. WE LOVE AND MISS YOU JAKE!!!
