Dear Shull family,

My deepest sympathy to you all, JD was a great guy to know, very kind like his sisters I had known many years ago. I last sat down with him at the funeral home when Mrs. Sanders died, as I will always call her, like another MOM to me.

We had such a nice talk and what a gentleman too.

I sure will remember him and his sisters in my prayers, what a family.

Jeff and Tim, so many years I have not seen you, when you came over to Terry's home.

Many great memories and good people to know.
