|So sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers|
|It was a great pleasure to have known JW. I always
enjoyed talking to him down by Blossom's while he
tended his cattle on his golf cart. My kids and I
still laugh about our visits with him in the last
couple years, where his sense of humor still
showed through. Rest in Peace JW.|
