Howell Police Give a Moving Tribute to Jake ‘The Tank’
Yesterday the Howell Township Police gave 7-year old Jake Honig a send-off worthy of a police officer.
At the funeral home where the visitation for Jake was held yesterday, more than 80 police officers, EMS, and other public employees and volunteers showed their love for this little hero who valiantly fought a rare form of brain cancer for so much of his little life.
The Howell police have been supporting Jake and the Honig family through this little one's journey battling cancer. Jake always loved the police, and the Howell force went so far as to get him his own police motorcycle ...CLICK HERE to re-read that story.
The Howell Police provided a police escort from the Honig's home to the funeral home where Jake was given a modified police funeral with honors, and the Honor Guard was posted right alongside him.
The Chief reminds everyone to 'Be like Jake'....a kid that was always smiling despite the odds -- a child that made such an impact on so many people in such a short time and changed people for the better.
Our love remains with the Honig family. May Jake's short time here continue to save other lives through all that he has given of himself.
For those who desire, memorial contributions in Jake's memory may be made to the Frances Foundation for Kids Fighting Cancer, Ashley Lauren Foundation, Kick Cancer Overboard, The Believe Project, or Squan-A-Thon.
