We were an hour away

My son works with me. I knew he’d want to say goodbye should the worst happen.

He loved unconditionally

Drew said, “No matter how bad a day I’ve had, Jake could make it better.”

He loved to walk

From his earliest days, we took Jake for walks through the neighborhood.

He looked out for his family

One night a raccoon got into his house.

He loved whatever we fed him

Sometimes you just make too much food.

It hurts, but time will heal us

Losing a loved one is hard enough.
