    I am still unable to comprehend this terrible and sudden loss. All I can offer is prayer for peace and healing of our hearts. Although years have passed since Kaylee and I shared so much of our childhood with the Carrolls, I have so many memories of the times we spent together as kids. I will always remember Jake as the goofy little brother with his beautiful deep red hair. For some reason when I picture him, it
