Jim, Crystal
I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. JD, as we referred to him on the course, was truly one of the best friends that I will ever have. The times that we spent on the course and talking in the 19th hole will always be cherished. There is hardly a week that goes by that I do not share some witty JD-ism that he just randomly spouted out. The best conversations that we had in the last couple of years were on the drives to the airport, which were very special.
Please accept my sincere condolences in your loss, a loss which will be shared by many of the people that called him a friend.

Thank you Jim. My brother and I are very grateful to you for being such a great friend to Dad. He enjoyed those early am trips to Charlotte Douglas Airport with you. You made sure he got to the plane and to Florida before the fish could get away. Dad was a good man and will be greatly missed by his family.
