    Uncle JD was a very strong and selfconfident man. As a military man, he was courageous. I recall on many occasions that Grandma Lee Etta had us pray for him as well as Rod, Preston and Mac as they served their country. He also had a sense of humor that we all enjoyed. He certainly enjoyed sports too. Uncle JD knew he could snore My fathers childhood stories will always be remembered fondly as a testimony to the love and faith that our family shareseven across the miles. He left a legacy in his children, grandchildren and their children. Aunt Dell, you and the entire family are in my prayers especially during this time of transition.
    May God Bless,
