I sure enjoyed talking to Jake when I volunteered at Schervier. We would talk about azaleas, gardening and faith issues and Dutch things since I am Dutch too. My warmest greetings to the family. I wish I had know he has passed away I would of come to the funeral. Mahlon (I'm a member of the Bellvale Community on Gibson Hill Road in Chester NY)
