I’m sitting up at Cristys and I glanced over at the door and remembered the last time you were here. You brought the boat and took Marina out to teach her how to run it. The storm that was lingering overhead was down right disturbing. As usual you were optimistic and were just ready to get out and Fish. I said this will either be a disaster or a wonderful life lesson. I think we agreed after it was a life lesson. You scared the crap out me!!! I was constantly checking yalls location and telling y’all just get back as the sky let loose a torrential rain and lightning storm. Y’all made it back but looked like drowned rats. Remember to stay out from under the trees. Snakes 🐍 lightening ⚡️

It’s been 1 month since you went home to God but man I miss you so. Just come hold my hand. I love you and I’m still broken hearted. My heart hasn’t caught up to my head. Actually I’m not sure it ever will.

When Marina was in HS she was in FFA and raised pigs for show, during that time me, Suzzanne and Maria Horn became close friends because all 3 of our daughters raised show pigs, most of the time it was us the the girls traveling around together for the girls to do Showmanship events together. Well, the Schneider’s had recently bought a trailer to haul the pigs in., with I think 4 cages. A Showmanship contest was in New Braunsfel so we loaded up the pigs, with of course JL helping the most.( it was a full weekend trip) He pulled all the girls pigs to New Braunfels with his truck. It was a weekend ordeal and YES, he was the only male on the trip + 3 teenage girls and 3 moms. We had some time to spare so decided( the females,lol) to float down the San Marcos river. As we walked up to rent our tubes on a very hot day, JL forgot his flip flops in the truck, so walked on the hot asphalt. We floated, laughed , played and talked . Well JL didn’t do much talking because with all of us he didn’t barely have a chance to say anything. Later that night Suzzanne had take JL to the ER, he had gotten 1st and some 2nd degree burns on bottom of his feet from the asphalt. The next morning we had to be at the Arena for the girls to do Showmanship. That man got up and went with us( of course he stayed in the truck because of the pain and to avoid an infection. BUT, he never complained and was his usual JL. I can honestly say I don’t think many dads, men would have done what he did, from the start of the trip until we got home Sunday evening.! It was the first time I had actually talked with him that weekend and from then on, he had 💯 of my respect

I remember when JL helped me get the lawnmower from your house to the Dover Hill house, and even stopped to put gas in it for me. That generosity meant the world to me that day, and is why I still remember it.

JL was one of the sweetest men I have ever met and I will always remember how kind he was to me. The world was a much better place while he was in it. I hope heaven knows how lucky they are to have him. May his kindness continue through the people he loved because the world could use more people like him.

To the Schneider family,

John Lee and I were the very best of childhood friends. We shared many fun years together growing up in Gulf Meadows playing baseball, swimming, having sleep overs, riding our bikes and fishing. He was always so much fun to be with and we never sat still!

Sadly, the years moved us apart but my heart still remembers and hurts that he left us so soon.

I have no doubt that he was the greatest husband and father and send my prayers to all of you at this difficult time!

God Bless,

Alan Cawley and Family

My prayers, thoughts and condolences are being lifted for Suzanne, Marina, Sean and JL’s extended family. I didn’t know JL well but his love for each of you was apparent through your family photos, loving comments that were heard over and over and the big smiles he always had for each of you!
It’s hard to lose a husband and a father so quickly and unexpectedly. Some days will be good and lots of them will be heartbreaking. Either way, Marina said it correctly... He will always be watching over you. Love, Jane
