    Dear Betty, Lea, Dave, Bob and Families, We are all so sad to hear of dear Jake’s passing. We have all been so privileged to have grown up in Mitchell St under the watchful eye of a great neighbour and friend in Jake and yourself.
    Watching him walk the greyhounds and take the kids ferreting will be one of many wonderful memories we will cherish forever of Jake. He was always up for a friendly chat, a joke and a smile.
    Another Mitchell St Gem gone to rock the heavens. A True Bulldog!
    Our love and prayers are with you Betty and family.
    Mick, Cindy, Rynelle, Haylee, Bud, Sophie Penny and their Families xx
