As a child, I have fond memories of my Uncle “Jewel” and family visiting. He was always a fun and loving person.
With love and deepest sympathies…

I miss this man beyond measure. He was God’s love in human form. He was kind, generous, forgiving and selfless. He loved his family with every fiber of his being and in turn left an enormous hole that won’t be filled until we meet again in Heaven. I am forever a daddy’s girl.
