    Ernie & family, so sorry for your loss, You have been a good friend for many years. We first met at Central Baptist Church in the nursery when Jay & Jena and my son, Scott were just babies. Later as we became members of Calvary Baptist Church we remained friends as church members. My prayers are with you & your family.

    Uncle J. B. Was a wonderful and always thoughtful man. I will miss him very much. He was loved by all he met. He was always making people smile and laugh every time you saw him.

    Our hearts are all saddened at the passing of Uncle J.B. The caring but stubborn husband, the thoughtful yet ‘tuff’ Dad, the joking and loved Uncle J.B. He will forever remain one of my most favorite uncles as I remember the positive times we shared. As with many families, our times together were few and too brief; but loving memories last forever. I cherish those memories.
