Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

If people had hearts like dogs...

We would be better humans.

We would relax more.

We would take up space without guilt.

We would love "our people" unconditionally.

We would find and fill empty spaces in rooms and hearts.

We would offer up nonjudgmental support.

We would lift people's spirits at every opportunity.

We would goof off more often.

We would would rock at silent, devoted companionship.

We would forgive human errors immediately.

We would be genuinely optimistic.

We would love others, more than ourselves.

Quite simply, if people had hearts like dogs, the world would be a much kinder and better place.

This is Jake.

Jake made me kinder

…and better,

and I’m going to miss him very, very much.
