Poppa, I will always love you. I will always miss you. You loved me so much. I will always remember our trips in the little yellow bug when you'd get home from work. Then the trips in the back of the pick up in the summer when you'd take us to the corner store to get ICEEs. We'd fly around that circle so fast that we squealed in delight. I will always remember the Land Before Time and all the railroad spikes we picked up while we walked around. All the stories you told us. All the sticks you found and told us were actually dinosaur bones. I will always remember when you found that old antique bike and we spent so much time together fixing it up, painting it, and then you taught me to ride it. We'd go around the circle everyday and talk, tell stories, and walk the dogs. I will always remember riding around in the truck and listening to cheesy music with you... and Hebert... and singing together. The first time we realized he would sing with us in the truck was a blast. Then he forever became known as "Woo Woo". Right now, I know I can't stop crying. It's all too new. It's all too unreal. I just saw you. But, I'm trying to be strong for Grandmama, because I can hear your voice... I can hear you telling me to take care of her. We all are. And, I love you so much. So much. So much. I'm heartbroken.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I grieve with you all the loss of dear Uncle J.D. He holds a special place in my heart as he did with my Mother, Jean. I pray God will strengthen you to go on without his physical presence. While we are mourning the loss of Uncle J.D., I know my Mom and his other family members are rejoicing in his arrival.

In my earliest memory of Uncle J.D., he was a twenty- or twenty-one-year-old visiting our family in Texas. What fun he was and how my mother Jean adored her younger brother. Who didn't love his smile and laughter? I smile now, remembering his tale of how he would scare his little sister Carolyn by jumping out of a car rolling downhill and running alongside it when forced to take her along on outings when they were teens. I will miss you, Uncle J.D.
