Thanks Karla, for your extended kindness. Your father was indeed, a good man. We all here in St Louis, last saw him in about 1979 or 1980. And we were saying how it seems like yesterday. But time fly's so quickly. Thanks again Karla, from Pam

Hi, Klump , I thought about calling you many months ago--to say hello and ask how you were doing. I remember when Cedric first brought you home from the Military to our house, in the early 1970's--and you had that orange hatchback car--I remember you telling me about your Italian heritage--and you cooking for my family a Italian spaghetti meal with Italian sausage---I remember also-you asking to marry me--and that time we went up there in Kirkwood to cash a check--how a lot of people--well to be specific--six guys came out threatening us because of our race--and rocking the car back and forth--and one guy had a baseball bat--yelling for us to get out the car---Well --anyway--enough of that ---That's why I wouldn't marry you--I didn't want us to be hurt--but just the same I always wondered about you silently--even though I'm married now--and have been for 27 years---I want you to know that I still love you in God's way-my way--and my mother still loves you as well--and she cried when she heard of your passing on to Jesus...I Love you JT Klump, in Jesus name amen

Mere words cannot express how much I will miss you and our almost daily talks; I must now be content to talk with you in my daily prayers.

While with us you fought the good fight and made every moment count without complaint. I hope you can now find peace and comfort.

I know that if God was looking for the best matchmaker he found one in you.

Rest in peace my brother.

Love

J.T.===The memories I want to hold dear and cherish are those when your presence on this sphere we call earth was vibrant and alive, and not those of your earthly body in a coffin, so when I look up toward the heavens I'll be searching for your spirit and will always be thinking of you. I love you brother--and one day we will see each other again--it is inevitable. Rest in Peace.
