Our beautiful son, Jacob Samuel Smilen Colman passed away on Saturday morning December 28, 2013, at his apartment in Palm Springs. The exact cause is still unknown, but preliminary indications are that it was “natural causes”. As if there is anything natural about a 24 year old boy dying in his home. We will post an announcement about his funeral when we know when and where. Rest in Peace, Jakey Jake.

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow. I created this blog in response to the most dreadful tragedy every parent fears, the death of a child, our 24 year old son, Jake. We are now on an unimagined journey along this road of grief and recovery. If you can find some comfort within these pages, than I will have succeeded in some small measure.

Ed, you have embarked upon a great and compassionate service, which is bound to be of immeasurable value parents who have to suffer this worst of experiences. Horrible as this path is, and as much as your friends regret Terry’s and your having to walk it, you’re on a sacred mission. We love and applaud you.
