Letty & Amy: my deepest prayers & cares to you both. Jake was a fine guy. I seem to recall that when my Father went off to WWII, he came over to the house & chopped kindling for my Great Grandmother. He'll be missed in all the years to come. DAVID SEYMOUR, U.S. NAVY (RET) PHS CLASS OF 1964 POOLESVILLE RESIDENT OCT 48-JUN 64 SON OF WM. & VERA SEYMOUR
