Mr. Jarrell taught me how to play the guitar. I remember spending many evenings sitting on his front porch learning. I would hear him playing from down the street and walk to his house. He would always take the time to show me things. As a kid I thought it was cool...as a man today... I realize just how rare it was for someone to allow some kid down the road to interrupt his personal time. Thank you Mr. Jarrell! I still play today! Praying for the grace and comfort of Jesus for the family and friends during this time of loss.
