  1. Dear Pepe Family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. This really was a shock to all of us who knew Jake. My family and I were remembering the mission trips to F2F and Belize with him. He was such a hard worker. I am praying for you all as you mourn the loss of one so young. May God carry you through the tough moments in his loving arms and may his grace and peace be with you always.
