Saying 'Goodbye' to Jake Eilen
One-year old Jaden Eilen's first words were "Dada," and he was already beginning to take after his dad, Jake Eilen, with a love of semi trucks.
The last time Anne Eilen talked to Jake, her husband, he called simply to tell her he loved her.
That phone call happened Nov. 23, just 10 minutes before Jake, 27, of Hampton, died in a one-vehicle accident on County Road 50, across the street from his parents' house and the house he was building for Anne and Jaden.
