Our sincerest condolences to you all. “JJ” was a very close friend of mine and had the pleasure of knowing him for a long time. He was my buddy. His sense of humor was legendary, and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. JJ (my nick name for him was “King James”) was the most kind hearted man I have ever known, and one of the best pistol shooters as well. He will be sorely missed. May God give you all peace during this difficult time, but rest assured, he is in the arms of Jesus and you will see him again!
