J . was strong and a fighter from the time he was born. I know he wanted to win this fight but this one was stronger then him. Loved his big smile . Always had a hug for everyone, especially his grandma whom shared a great love for each other.
Your love for life and intellect will be missed.
Aunt Joyce and Uncle Wayne are thinking of all of you at this time.
