RIP Jake Shoe

RIP Jake Shoe. 1960 - 2011

Bon viveur, stubborn mule and unrivalled friend. 

A Spoonie who lived every moment until he died. 

"How d'you like them apples?"


  1. From Dave : (Jake was his bessie mate) "All of the above are right !!! Sue Marsh is a VERY special woman, who has to try harder than any "healthy" people will ever realise. She is also a very naughty girl who should rest more!!!
    Loving hubby.."

    Altogether now "Awwwwwww"

  2. Sorry to hear that you've lost your friend ... I still feel angry with my friends Jenny and Claire for dying on me when I wanted them to keep me company for many more years.

    Syzygy Sue x

  3. ah, it happened in the middle of all the sickness madness actually, I just realised was actually end of 2010. That's how mad life was, we kind of cried a bit then faced the next day of hell.

    He was Dave's bessie mate and a videographer. He made loads of videos for Dave's bike business in Italy never charged and was like a crutch to Dave all through. He was diabetic, smoked like a trouper, lived in Tuscany, was Dutch, drank like a fish and never ever did anything he was told.

    He lived in Italy and we hadn't seen him for months. Poor Dave.

    Anyway, a spoonie with spirit - my kind of guy.
