Many prayers and healing wishes to Jake's family as well as the Willis Family. I met Jake a year or more ago thru Shelby, his girlfriend and recent Fiance. The thing that most impressed me about Jake was his ability to smile at everything and made you smile in return.
His love for Shelby was evident in everything he did, a most pleasant and caring individual towards her.
I will continue to pray for all involved in this terrible tragedy.

TIna Holmes, friend of Tammy and Gene Willis.
