As I write this, I along with many of you, am heartbroken and at a loss for words. Life isn’t always fair, that is what makes you tough and pull together. Being a unique family, we laugh together, cry together and have so many blessings that many don’t have or choose to have. We have overcome many obstacles together and have scars and tears unseen by others. We are a strong family by the grace of God. Let us bow to our knees, lift our voice, empty our hearts, and thank God for our blessings.
We all know Jason in different ways. His coworkers have expressed how much they appreciated his time and willingness to teach someone how to do the job, the right way. Lunchtime conversations will be missed as well as his smile and that little laugh that we all loved to hear. Jason enjoyed running heavy machinery and those he worked with. On behalf of the family, our condolences to you. We will be praying for the void you feel when he is not there moving the next load of dirt.
Jason shared with several of us a song called, “Everybody talks to God.” He believed that and it truly resonated with him. We never know what the next man is facing, when it will be his last day or the impact we will make on someone else’s life. I would encourage you to be kind, forgive often and love because one day, tomorrow will never come. One of Jason’s favorite devotionals was, “Sun stand still.” By Steven Furtick. It’s about daring to believe God for the impossible. I encourage you to read Joshua 10.
The Legacy we leave behind is etched into the hearts of others and the stories they share about you. We could go on for hours with stories about swimming holes, football games, hide-n-seek, egg-tosses, winning pool matches, a lifetime of memories. We also see that a lifetime is not that long. I would ask you today, what Legacy are you leaving, and have you talked to God lately? You never look into the eyes of someone that Jesus doesn’t love.
Funeral Services will be at 2 o’clock, Sunday, July 31, 2022 with Rev. James Cline officiating at the Old Pathway Church, Old Road Johnny Cake Mtn. Family Visitation 12 p.m. Friends 1 pm.

On behalf of the family, Thank you for your continued prayers.
