Jimmie Joe, or Uncle Mongoose, as we lovingly knew him as was a part of my life. Every year he would come to Calwood Mo to go deer hunting and as a kid and later as an adult, I could not wait for November to get here to see him and the rest of the Lepley clan that came. It was an annual event for that family to get together, and others of us became family with them because of these yearly outings. My condolences to Jimmie Joe's family. Love and healing to you all, Carolyn Pitt Bernicky and Dwayne Bernicky
