Uncle Jump, Thank you for always being there growing up with us helping me learn how to shoot a bow, scaring away my deer, and all those fishing rodeos we went to. I don't have very many memories that you weren't apart of. I hate that my kids won't get those same memories with you. I will cherish those memories forever. I know you're in good hands up there. You and Mom-mom keep an eye out for us. We Love You. Jessica, Bobby, Jazzy, Dean and Aiden

Uncle Jump I am going to miss you so much. I've been thinking about all the memories over the years and can't think of many that don't include you. Snowball fights, water fights, fishing, tracking Dad's deer for hours that seemed like days, swimming in the pool and pond, amusement parks, the list goes on. We won't forget the fun, smiles and laughs! Thank you for always hanging out with us. I am bummed my kiddos don't get to grow up with you, but they will know you through pictures and stories. Give Mom-mom a hug for us. Til we see you again. We love you!
Love~Jenny, Eric, Sarah, Makenzie and Peyton
