If you don't know who Nan is, you obviously don't know the family, at all.

Grandma: I do know what you are saying -- I don't negate the Iraq faction of Jake's problem (it probably escalated it) but the problems were there years and years ago. If the parents always make excuses for a child's actions and if the child has never been held responsibile for his actions you cannot expect him to own up to his problems/responsibilities as an adult. I am sad to think his family isn't helping in this situation though -- but maybe that is for the best as they would maybe offer another excuse for Jake's actions. I am not sure who Nan is as his grandmother's name wasn't that. I think Jake would be surprised to know that there are people out here that do care about him! Keep us advised of his progress!

Claiming that his parents are responsible would make Nan rollover in her grave....but then, she already IS for what her children are doing with her (and her father's) legacy.

You have known him since childhood?? Then you should know more than anyone why he is the way he is, but there is not a doubt in my mind what Iraq has done to him also. Also you have to make his parents PARTLY responsible because I don't care what people think, children learn what they live! Just look at what no discipline has done to society these days?? I can't believe the changes from only 30 years. He's not the first victum of this conflict and certainly won't be the last. It was a shame when Nan died. She was a really neat lady, and knew him better than his own mother I think. She as much told me so.
