Loved JW and the camaraderie that he had with the driving community and the “Mississippi bunch”. Their love of driving and their Southern charm would amaze others in the driving world. One special memory was at the CAA conference in French Lick, IN. I was at the stable area when I heard someone yelling “help”, we need help so I ran to see - they pointed in a direction and I took off. On the way I saw Barbara Cook and Warren Hood on the ground holding a 4-in-hand so I knew there must be REAL trouble elsewhere. And there was! JW’s roof seat break had come off a narrow bridge and the whole rig (people and horses) fell into a canal with smelly water in it. Luckily only two needed stitches (Bridget and one horse that Brother Cook quickly took care of). Of course the Mississippi bunch had brought a spare roof seat break (who does that!!) and all was good to go the next day. They had the Commissioner of Agriculture from the State of Mississippi come up with all the makings for fried catfish and hush puppies - enough for all attendees of the CAA conference and to top it off, they had an Elvis Presley impersonator sing for two hours and all these Mississippi gentlemen (CEOs and doctors) wearing Elvis Presley wigs and sunglasses and the ladies were all wearing poodle skirts and Bobby socks and tennis. It was a HUGE hit. Loved it! So proud to be from Mississippi and the hospitality state with these drivers and entourage who were the epitome of Southern hospitality. JW greeted everyone and made them feel a part - a true Southern gentleman!! RIP my friend.
