Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I will always remember your smiling kind face and positive attitude. You were always a true gentleman and those who got to spend time with you were all the better for it. You should be proud of your two lovely daughters. There are just like you........a class act. You will be missed but will always be a part of our JCPD family.
