Dear Frances, Kenny, Mark and family,
For the past 28 years I have rocked in my chair on my front porch while enjoying my first cup of coffee of the day. Much of that peaceful experience was due to the scenery across the street which was Jodies and Frances’ immaculate front yard. A beautiful green lawn with tall full trees filled with singing birds. We’ve always called it LaBree Park. 😊 Many mornings Jodie would come out to get his newspaper at the end of his driveway and he would call out to me. It was never a simple “good morning “ and I’m pretty sure he knew I would have to cross the street in order to understand him. It was our thing and We always enjoyed our little talks. He loved to talk. Our home is so different knowing Jodie is not across the street. I loved him and already miss his friendship.
Manny and I are so sorry for your loss.

Ken, I am so sorry for you and your family’s loss. He was a great dad, husband and I remember when you played football with Russ Glover, your dad was in the bleachers with the rest of us cheering our team on! He is watching over his family with love and devotion. You are the embodiment of his ethics and love.

My heart felt condolences, The LaBree’s have left a positive impact on my life. I will cherish the memories I have had with them. Jody taught me I did not have the skill to play fast pitch softball 😂 I remember standing up to the plate and him on the mound, I don’t remember seeing the ball wiz by me three pitches in a row. As you can guess I was out. I know he retired from the Fire department and impacted positively many lives. Great family and great man.

I remember your dad in high school . He was vigilant when it came to you and football. He would show up daily. He would give us tips and was grooming you to be a quarterback. My deepest condolences to you and your family. God bless Jodie, May he Rest In Peace. ❤️✌️🎶🎸🎶

Oh papa I love you! I wish I could hear you do your duck impression which is really odd since I hate ducks! I will miss your humor and jokes because you could always light up a room and our family too. I will miss you so very much.
