APRIL 25, 2007 - BY JAKE

APRIL 25 is the anniversary of the pasing of my Mama's papa who is my grandpa.

I never met my grandpa cause he went up to heaven many years before I was born but My mama says he was swell!

She said he is the one who taught her to LOVE ANIMALS! He was always bringing home stray cats and dogs home with him. There was not one animal he didn't like and Mama said there wasn't a time when they didnt have an animal or two in the house (including birds or fish)!

Mama named me after him - his name was Jouquim but everyone called him Jake!

So thanks grandpa for teaching my mom to love pets (and therefore me) and most of all for letting me have your name.

Your grandpa sounds like a very special person. I'm sure those lost animals sought him out because they knew he had a kind heart...animals sense that! I'm sure he's watching over you two, plus your mama and auntie (and Chelsea!) I'm sure he would have loved you two SO much.

Your Grandpa sounds like a very special man. Your Mummy was lucky to have a Daddy like that.
