    Notes 
    • [Related - Crumpler Name - jjones116@aol.com.ftw]

      He had a twin brother Howard Oron "Bill" King. The twins were born about 3:30 p.m. on a Friday in Oxford Community; Jake was born first. The doctor charged $10.00. Jake and Bill were about six years old when the family moved to the Ebenezer
      community.

      Jake's nephew Bruce King often said what a fine man his Uncle Jake was. Jake and Gena took care of his mother during her bout with cancer. They took her to Houston during her treatments and gave her much love and care.

      The following Paraphrase of Proverbs 31:10-31 was written by Tilden B. Armstrong:



      In Memory of H. H. (Jake) King



      A good son, husband, father, who can find?

      He is far more precious than stocks, bonds or real estate.

      His wife has no occasion to doubt his integrity, and he will prove a good provider.

      He remains faithful to his vows all the days of his life.

      He seeks for work; finds it and gives a day's service for a day's wage.

      He is like the ships of merchants, bringing provisions for his household from far and near.

      He rises early in the morning and makes adequate preparations for the day.

      He considers every opportunity an occasion for investment, and takes advantage of it.

      He plants where he does not expect to reap, but with a prayer that it will bless others.

      He gives praise to God for strength of mind and body.

      He has conviction that the way of the Lord is profitable.

      The radiance ofhis faith is not dismiished by the darkness of doubt, nor the approach of night.

      He puts his heart, as well as his hands into his work.

      He shares what he has with the poor, and gives a helping hand to the needy.

      He doesn't dread the coming of Winter, having used the Spring and Summer to make ready for whatever it may bring.

      His neat dress speaks of his kind and gentle spirit.

      His wife is honored and respected by all who know her.

      The callouses on his hands are the product of his labor, which sustains and blesses his family.

      He is clothed with strength and dignity of a faith that keeps a smile on his face regardless of the circumstances of life.

      He speaks words of wisdom; his tongue knows no words except those of kindness.

      His heart delights in his family. He teaches his children to honor God and neighbor with honest toil.

      His children bless God when they remember him; so does his wife; and the life that he lived continues to praise her.

      Many men have done excellently, but he is near the top of the list.

      Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, to some people, but he used them to praise God and bless his neighbor.

      The life that he has lived shall never cease to be a blessing and a benediction to all who come after.

      Love never dies!

      The name was "Jake".

      "He Walked with God and God Took Him Home."
