I was so blessed to have known and loved JD (Papa) for several years. He was a constant in my life, no matter how long we had not seen each other. He lit up my day or week or month, every time I got to spend time with him.
He was one of the kindest and most precious men I have ever known. After I lost my own dad I asked JD if I could call him Papa. Of course he said yes and that was who he was to me from that moment on. And of course, that made Betts "Mama."
I will always love him and cherish him and look so forward to day I get to see him again, for I know that day will surely come.
I love you Papa,
Always and forever,
Your other daughter Karen ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Our Uncle Jim was truly THE most loving man. He made you feel so loved with the warmest, most genuine hugs. His laughter was one of a kind, and will never be forgotten. He loved his Betts, and we’re so grateful to witness their love story. He is missed immensely; rest easy now Uncle Jim. We love you.
