The world was a better place when JB was here. I see him in my minds eye as the 18 year old in high school. He called me his little sister and walked me to many of my classes. There was no romantic involvement only true, pure, love and admiration of one kid for another. Although I haven't seen you for many many years, I remember you like it was yesterday. Thanks for helping me through those awkward years my big brother of choice. You will be sorely missed by every walk of your life. Thanks for the pieces you gave me. Rest in peace and I'll see you on the other side.

Dear Family, so sorry to hear the passing of JB. I think I'm right that he grew up in Highlands area. I grew up in Garden City area of Jacksonville. We played baseball as young fellows and played for Ribault in the State 4A Championship in 1964 together.

Please know that you are in the prayers of a lot of people who love you. In the days to come, may the Lord put his arms around you.

In Christ,
Jim Irwin
