Terry and I are overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all our friends, and Jake’s friends. We are truly humbled by your thoughts, words and fond remembrances of Jake. The best thing we can do is to celebrate his life, his love of life, and his gentle and caring nature. Our Beautiful Boy.

The grief diet is working. 7 pounds in two days. But I don’t recommend it.

Funeral service for Jake will be at Hillside, 6001 W. Centinela at Sepulveda, 3 PM on Tuesday the 31st, graveside. Join us at our home afterwards to celebrate his life and bring a memory with you.

Another blossom
gone too soon

A bud really

Withered-still closed
petal by petal

Only memory
only what might have been

He was a chef, an artist, a photographer, an inventor, a builder, a deep thinker, a lover, a laugher, a traveller, a caring friend to all, with the gift of brightening up any room he walked into. He encouraged everyone he met to excel, to strive for his or her fullest potential. A fiercely loyal friend who touched so many people.

Maybe if we all loved him just a little more, held on a little tighter, he wouldn’t have slipped away like this. I know Terry and I couldn’t have loved him any more. He was our everything.

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.

    OK, because I’m an alternative bio-energy system who sometimes can down computers by merely being in the room, I hit “Comment” and the site throws me back to the entry.

    Other than that, I stand in awe as you begin to bring something of beauty and value out of the abyss.

    XOXO A.
