    I am so sorry for the family’s lost. I worked with JD for a while. And dealt with him several years doing parts. He was absolutely one of my favorites and so pleasant to deal with. Always gave me a helping hand. He was one of the best knowledgeable parts people i knew. Rip JD

    Ralph and family, I am so sorry to hear of JD’s passing. I always enjoyed my conversations with him when I would call KW and order parts. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I cannot believe that we have lost you James. We thought we had many more months with you. It was heartbreaking to learn that all our hopes were in vain, but we still held onto our hope that you would be here for Annies graduation. God had another plan though. I know you suffered in the past year and I am grateful that you suffer no more. Taking care of you the last week of your life was a blessing and a struggle for me. The blessing was that I had you home with our family. I refused to allow you to be “put” somewhere for strangers to take care of you. The struggle was trying so hard not to hurt you, but to help you. You told me many times how thankful you were. You would have done the same for me if needed. You would have helped anyone if they needed help. That was just the kind of man you were. I know many truckers will miss you because of your honesty and integrity when working with them. Liz, Ralph and I will miss you every day of our lives. We will take care of your kiddos, dont worry about that. I know in my heart that you are at peace. I know your happy to be back with mom, dad and Pat and I cannot be upset over that. Just know that for me, you have been the best brother and when you left us, a part of my heart went with you. I will forever be heartbroken from your passing. I love you, forever.
    Your little sis.
