  1. Dear Brenda,

    JB and I had many many long conversations in the years we worked together. Many fond memories of his Christian Walk with God still resonate with me.

    I remember JB phoning me when the airplane went into the first tower on 911 – we were both confused about what was going on.

    It was a pleasure and an honour to have known him. His sincerity and his love of God are what most
    drew me to him.

    I am sorry I didn’t keep up with him over the last few years. But he was always in my thoughts and my prayers.

    Thanks you for sending me his obituary – JB’s faith sustained me many times in my life.

    I always said he was the “Best Looking man in all of Lubbock Texas” which always got a laugh out of him.

    I know he will be greatly missed by all of your family and especially by you.

    May God Bless you and Protect You,
