It Took Four Years To Find Grandpa Jake.
Much Thanks To A Wonderful Man Named Herod McPeak From Walling Tennessee It Never Would Have Happend If We Would Have Never Met.

I Was So Happy When We Found Him.
Standing There At His Grave, I Started Crying.
Than I Became So Angry And Sad.
I Will Never Understand How Anyone Could Be So Mean And Hateful To Another.
It Breaks My Heart To Think About His Pain.
I Just Hate So Much Leaving Him There In The Woods.
My Husband And I Visit Him Every Memorial Weekend.

If I Could Go Back And Meet Someone From
Our Past...It Would Be You Grandpa Jake :-)

God Bless You Sweet Angel.

God bless you throughout Winter, the cold, harsh season in which nature sleeps and goes dormant, awaiting the arrival of Spring. Rest in Peace.
