Thank you for being my dear Uncle and really a big brother to me. You gave me so much I didn't even know anything else. A job at Easy Pick, helped save and surprised me with my first motorbike on my birthday. Drove it back to Yulee after work and got to school. You fixed the lights drilling to replace with Schwinn bike light.🙂 So many stories I could tell! Rode my bike to you when a husband of Mom's was abusing her. You handled that in a matter of minutes I'll miss you but will tell plenty of funny tales in memory.

I am saddened to read of JT’s passing. I enjoyed seeing him when he would bring Jimmy to school when I was his teacher. JT was always a wonderful father and brightened my day. He never missed an opportunity to teach me how things are done in the south and was a great storyteller. I trust he leaves many memories of good times that will bring smiles to all of you who will miss him every day. Peace to all of you..
