Jake would have been 30 today. It is insane how fast time goes by. I don’t think a day has passed that something during my day reminds me of him. 

When I go to Wendy’s I think about how he would have got two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers. When I go fly to New York I fly in seat 21F because 21 was his favorite number because of Deion Sanders. I can’t even begin to tell you all the Simpsons quotes that reminds me of our friendship. I’ve been playing classic console games again and I could tell you each Sega Genesis game we played and which ones we beat or got stuck on.

Time does not heal all wounds. That said, I know he would not want me to be sad, but to keep moving forward in life and keep laughing.

You are dearly missed, but you are everywhere in the world I go.
