Jake in our hearts

Jacob Knoke touched the lives of his friends and family in a way that can never be explained. We should not be mourning the loss of Jake, but instead giving thanks to everything he taught us and everything he did for us. He is in our thoughts and our hearts. Although many of us knew Jake, not all of us know his family. By looking at how big his heart was and how much he cared about his friends, we can only guess how wonderful his family must be. I want to give special prayers to the entire Knoke family.
