My deepest sympathy goes out to you as you face this difficult time. May the God of all comfort be with you during this trial (2 corinthians 1:3,4). Although death is a very hard thing to deal with may you find some peace and hope in knowing that soon we will be reunited with our loved ones again(Acts24:15). May God continue to strengthen you in the days to come.

We got to know J. D. through the eyes of his daughter, Tami, and had the pleasure of a brief personal friendship with him and Vaniece. I remember we always teased him about looking so much like Don Sutton when he was younger. He was loved by so many, but left good memories for all to share.
