  • My wife May and I are privileged to have known Jake and Barb these past twelve years. My appreciation for Jake grew into a real sense of brotherhood in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ and the family of God. I miss him dearly, already. . . . for now. ~+~

    Peter Black
  • 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.[a] If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[b] 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.

    We find comfort in these verses from the Apostle John.

    Dad, we miss you! We love you! Thank you for being such a great role model. Can’t wait to chat with you when we come into our permanent home in heaven with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!

    Love Bill, Antonia, Chelsey, Josiah, Tenley and Carter
