Prayers for the Wanda and the family. Our neighbors for years. J T hit our Dog right after we moved here and stopped to tell us how sorry he was, it wasn’t his fault but we really appreciated his kindness by stopping by. The dog was chasing a rabbit and ran right out in front of J T. Wonderful neighbors!

J. T. was a special man. I do not remember seeing him when he was not smiling. He was very kind. I had a gardener who said his truck had broken and J.T. had stopped to help him. J.T. also offered him some work. He was so surprised and appreciative of J.T.'s generosity. I could tell he was truly moved by such kindness. My heart is with you all at this time.

JT was a definite sweetheart. There was never a time that I didn’t walk through those church doors or anywhere else that I may have ran into him that I didn’t get a hug. He was so kind and loving. God gained another angel and one day we will get to reunite with him at his new address. You will be missed! Prayers for strength for sweet Wanda and all the family.
