We laid him to rest on a stunning, windy hill overlooking The Dart Valley, with a sky full of rainbows and so many sorrowful hearts full of love for this rare treasure of a man.
A crowd of fond friends and strangers gathered around the first bonfire I've shared this year and swathed ourselves in quiet contemplation and smoke.
I was moved and inspired by the strength and insightful words of his family, friends, and colleagues and by the wealth of love tangible in the air for this talented, considerate and thoughtful young man.
It's been a pleasure and a privilege playing with you and having you grace my music, Jake. Rest well lovely x.
