I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a great guy!
Caroline, I can’t imagine what you are all going through and I have done nothing but think about you since I heard about Jake. Although I never met him Caroline I feel like I knew him from all our talks of our families both good and the struggles. Jake will always be in your heart even though it is breaking right now. If there is anything I can do for you or your family please let me know. Hugs!
I am terribly sorry for the loss of Jacob. May you take comfort in knowing that every single tear that falls from our eyes, does not escape our loving Heavenly Father’s notice. He is aware of our pain and promises to end all suffering. (Revelation 21:3,4). Sending all our love to you.
Jake was a great friend of mine. No subject was off limits and our confidnce in one anothers darkest moments was something i won’t forget. He gave the best hugs, the best love, always smiling and laughing. One of the best hearts I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing… Forever in my heart
Caroline and girls I am so very sorry to hear about Jake. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know this is a difficult time for you all. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. If not now in the weeks to come too.
Dear Caroline & family, words are inadequate to express the sorrow I feel over your loss. Caroline, I know I can’t make your pain go away, but I am here for you, if you need an ear or a shoulder….you are in my heart and prayers.
Caroline, I know how much you loved your son. You always talked about him whenever we were together. I am deeply saddened by this news and while I never met Jacob, I knew how wonderful he was by how you light up. You, your family and friends are all in my prayers during this unimaginable time. We love you very much. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4)
We are so very sorry for your loss.
Dear Family Members, while I do not know you, I send my healing thoughts and energies to you in your loss. … And, as importantly, I affirm you on your strengths in this painful time by your public education and destigmatizing for others by listing the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention as a living memorial in his name. May this strength see you through these difficult times.
