I love you so much Jake. I wish I had the chance to tell you while you were alive but it proves how much insecurities and pride can block blessings in our lives. I will love you forever and never forget the memories we shared. I hope we can meet one day eventually.

I was SPC Gray’s Instructor at BLC. I will always remember that he had a smile on his face and was a great Soldier. I would have him explain to the other students in class from out of town what terms like Lagniappe and crawfishing meant. I will always remember him as my Soldier and brother. Love you buddy, go with God.

Dearest Jake, today my heart is so heavy. I miss your smile I miss your energy. for the short time that I knew you Jake you were like a son to me. I often thought of you and Stephen and Jamar as the three musketeers all for one for all and all for one I knew that as a mom man almost 2,000 miles away from her son that he would be okay because he had friends like you. It is with a broken heart then on today your memorial I have to fully acknowledge that you're not here with us physically. I will forever miss your smile in fact the only time I never saw you smile as when you were playing your video games! Well for now my sweet son take your rest in the heavenlies and until we meet again in the great rapture of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ rest well.
