    I can only speak for myself when I say that the day i met you 41 years ago changed my life forever.The joy i felt back then , just by being near you,is only surpassed by the pain I feel now , of having lost you. You left us way too soon Jaycee., but I believe we will meet again someday and until then… Rest In Peace …Goodnight My Sweet Prince…:(

    Jason and Jessica, I am sad in my heart for you. I hate you have to give up another parent. We are always here for you.. You both stepped up and were there for your dad after the accident. He fought a long hard battle. Jess, I am so glad you were with him the day that he called on God to forgive his past. That was the most important decision of his life. He loved you both more than he knew how to show at times. I’m glad that you both had these last 2 years together with him . I love you both very much. God will give you strength to get through this once again. My heart is with you now and always. Love, Aunt Patsey

      Jes and Jason, I just read about this. I am sorry for your loss. No matter the circumstance, it is never easy to lose a parent. He loved you two the only way that he knew and that was from his heart. None of us are perfect parents, but I believe that God blessed those that hold that title. I remember how much fun Pam and JC were and how “cool” I thought they were when we lost Mother and Lori and I spent time with them at Uncle James and Aunt Bettys. I love you sweet cousins. Please know that I am praying for peace. Call me anytime.

    A beautiful tribute. I wish I could be there for you in person today, Jason and Jessica, but know that my heart is very much there in Tennessee and that I love you both. I have fond memories of Pam and J.C.—there were hard times, but we had some fun too! They were always good to me when I was a kid, taking me to the movies (I begged your mom to take me to see Star Wars when it came out, but it was sold out so she took me to see JAWS instead … and I don’t think I slept for a week!). We also enjoyed playing putt-putt golf and rollerskating. They were always ready to run me someplace and to entertain and take care of me. I have happy memories of all that. Jessica, I can still remember when you were born—I was back home from college that weekend and stopped by the hospital to see my new (and only!) niece. Your mom was so happy that day (but very exhausted, I remember) and your dad was practically jumping out of his skin he was so excited! Your Mamaw and Papaw were there, too, and they were so proud. And I remember how proud they and we all were of you, Jason, as you set out to pursue and succeed at your life’s interests, like hunting and football, and as your own son was born, and as you became the self-sufficient, decent man you would become. You are two good people who came from two good people, and a loved and valued part of a wonderful family. Love, Uncle Tony
