My son Jake had a big heart he loved everyone he was actually born with a big heart and the doctor's told me that his little body would grow into it and it and he did. When Jake said he loved you he really loved you and he meant what he said. Jake loved his family there were times when we didn't get along with each other but deep down inside we never stopped loving each other not a day went by that I didn't call and check on him expect that last week before he passed away I always regret that I love you Jake Martin
