Bub I will always remember your big loving heart. You cared about everybody and everything. Your babies and family was your life. You always wanted everyone to be happy and smiling when they were around you.... They will never be another JJ and I am going to miss you but if I ever need to smile I can think about you because you could lite up a room. I love you Bub and will miss you my hope is to see that smiling face again one day but until then keep smiling down on us
