I cannot believe Jed is gone. When I think of those days, when we all were so young, Jed, Troy, Bobby, Mike, Ronnie, Bubba, and me. Summer nights in the Quarter, Takee Outee and Port O’ Call, with many a Monsoon into the wee hours of the morning. We were all learning about what love and acceptance really meant. I miss you guys very much. Time goes by much too fast. I will be sad for a long time over Jed. I can still hear his laugh. ❤️

I knew him from Lowe's, we had a lot of fun together, my heart is just broken. I love you Jed, shine bright in the sky baby!

I have so many memories of myJed at Mardi Gras, a.k.a “its Carnnnnnival”. Coming to see me at the Convention Center when I rode in Orpheus he was chasing my float because I had his special giant purple tiger stuffed animal. The tree branch falling on My Cayenne when he came to visit me in Shreveport after Katrina, working together at Pier One, our Cruise we went on was blast, I needed earplugs from his snoring but I wouldn't change anything about that trip for the world. Drunkin Santa Parties, Saints and LSU games there is just so much. There are so many great memories of our good times. I remember he would text me about beauty pageants when they were on TV and I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about. I would think why or how does he know this and I don't. LOL. His smile and laugh was contagious. God I am going to miss you more than words can’t describe. My heart is aching while I am typing this. My heart goes out to his family and all who loved him, rest easy my dear friend! Meet me at the gates when its my time I cant wait to see you letting everyone know they better open them up. 😘

My childhood memories are filled with fun, mischief and lots of laughter! Ged, along with our hood gang, were certainly innocent and memorable times. I will forever remember Ged (along with Bobby) , with fondness and a BIG smile! I’m glad God allowed us to be friends!
