    We are so sorry to hear of your loss. I know he was a loving father who cared very much for his children. He was also a good friend always with a smile on his face and an outstretched hand. He will be missed.

    First off Jake and everyone in his family have always been there for me ever since I was ten. I am now nineteen and so much has changed in both our families through all this time except for the love in my heart for this wonderful family. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Thank You for always believing in me Jake I Love and Will miss you! "Harmless" Intro: The state of mind I'm in, I can't control me! I've got to break out before these thoughts entrap me. I hopped the fence to escape from myself. (And there's nowhere to go!) Verse 1: Solving mysteries of this life, don't really matter. I've tried to write this so many times, but it's never better. Wanna hate the world; then love it later. (When there's nowhere to go!) Chorus: Don't tell me this cancer's, harmless! Don't tell me that he can save me now! I gave up on that night. Is life a story that reveals no meaning? Verse 2: Everyday is so routine; it's never ending. A constant hell, an eternal ember. Only one thing changes; and that's the way I plan it. (And there's nowhere to go!) Chorus: Don't tell me this cancer's, harmless! Don't tell me that he can save me now! I gave up on that night. Is life a story that reveals no meaning? Bridge: Struggling day by day , can't seem to find my way. It pays to love and hate; 'cause it fuels my fire and that's ok. But i still have to say; live life to the fullest everyday, 'cause you might wake up to find it's all been taken away. Chorus: I'll tell you this cancer's, harmless! I'll tell you that he has saved me now! I live each day to the fullest. I'm sorry lord, for this mess of hatred. Written By: Kevin Morris March 12, 2006 © 2008, Kevin Morris (BMI).
