I am very sorry to hear that J.B. has passed away. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I hope thoughts of J.B. will always bring a smile to your face. In my brief experience with your family I have no doubt that he valued his time with you all, especially during the past year. It was very easy to see how proud he was of his family.

Warmest regards,
