In the wee hours of May 15 , 2016 my son , your friend ,was killed in an accident in which your truck left the road and rolled several times . I understand fully that accidents do happen but what I don’t understand is how you know Jake lost his life and in an attempt to protect yourself you made statement that Jake was the driver and after a full investigation we all know now that that is not true . You were driving . My son is defenseless and you tried to disgrace his name to benefit yourself . I will never forgive you , instead I will use my anger as strength. You can not break me , I am strong . I have chosen to be Jakes voice from now on and I will be in every court room that you are in and I hope you can look me in the eye . I now know more details than I did when I was weak and emotional and now my anger could fuel a fire so I hope you are ready . I will set quietly beside you and listen to your words and allow the court system to do it’s duty and trust that they will bring justice to Jake . What you don’t know is how you have affected our lives . Allow me to explain . Jake is my first born child and he has taught me what unconditional love as a mother means . He is my first true love as I have never loved anyone so deeply and without judgment or regret until I had children . He will never get the chance to have his own children and as the last Kinney male his sir name may now not be carried on . You took from us the chance to ever tell him we love him or to wish him a happy birthday . His sisters and brother now have to speak to their brother through photos and hold on to memories as that is all they have left . Jake will never get married or have the chance to see his bride in her gown coming down the isle to him . We will never dance at his sisters wedding . He will never see his sister graduate or get the chance to be the cool uncle every child deserves. He will not be at our dinner table at Thanksgiving dinner and there will be no presents under our tree with his name on them beings he can’t be there . His little sister can’t call on her big brother when boys break her heart or needs some brotherly advice . As simple as it may seem , his dogs are confused as to why their dad isn’t coming home or not taking them for rides in his truck . No more family vacations or cookouts for him . I won’t be getting the mothers day wishes he always gave me . I wake up every morning and the first thing on my mind is my son and throughout the day I don’t ever get to call him or recieve the random text from him that make me smile . Our lives have forever changed and it seems to you he is just another guy you used to know . I’m sorry for your family that now have to be without you because of your actions , they don’t deserve that but you made that decision for them . A parent should never have to lose a child and I know now the immense pain and literal heart break that come with that and I would not wish this on anyone . You now have to live with the fact that he is gone and that is never going to leave you and I can not say that I am sorry for that . As I go through life missing him and wishing he were here I will remember you and be thankful that Jake wasn’t the one that took your life so that your mother doesn’t ever have to feel the way I do everyday . I raised a dam good man and I am so very proud when I see the emormous amout of support we have and all of his friends flying their flags and remembering our son with the stickers on their windows in his honor . We must have done something right for him to have made such an impact on so many peoples lives . I wish you the best and that is all I am willing to do at this point . I’ll see you soon .
