You should be sitting on the Porch waving at me.. Miss you sweet Man..If there is a Garden in Heaven, I'm sure God put you in charge. Rest in Peace, Until we Meet again.. June 3rd 1960 ~ January 17, 2016 :("
"I miss you so very much. Happy Birthday. Thought about you a lot while out mushroom hunting."
"Love you and miss you"
"Never forget the whole crew that rode ATVs..all the bonefires and the get togethers at the cabin...thanks for the memories....RIP my friend"
"I cannot express how much all these postings mean to JR'S family and all who knew him. Each message describes the brother I've always known. He and Tim have always had that special place in my heart that no one else has ever shared. Hold your families tightly. God bless each and everyone who knew JR"
"Well here I am again posting! My family really thought a lot of JR. We have only knew JR. for 13 years but in that time we have grown to love him so much. We have spent a lot of time with him in those years. I am writing again because we had some really great memories happened in the snow:) Years ago we got a really big snow storm and we all crowded up like sardines and over loaded Mike Siers Chevy van and went backroad roading which we all loved to do and then across Myers Fork and went to Brian Fosters grandpas cabin. We had so make fun. We all played in the snow. We had many snowball fights. I can remember JR. made the best snowballs ever! They did hurt a tad because he had a arm of steel. After he threw one you heard that little cackle he made! Lol! We so loved that cackle!! JR was a kid at heart!! The things we take for granted he didn't! He lived off the land enjoyed all the finer things in life! He loved his Brother Tim, Miss Daisy, family, friends and the beautiful earth!! R.I.P. Our Friend!!! OXOXOXOX"
"I still cant believe ur gone, I wish I would have been around more the last couple years. I cant help but feel like I could have prevented this,I know its not my fault but I cant help but feel responsible. Other than mark, u and tim are the closest thing ive had to a dad, u were always there no matter what was goin on or what I did wrong. I love u uncle JR I NEVER FORGET YOU, I just hope were ever your are you have a beer in your hand and a smile on your face. I'll see you again one day"
"So sorry to hear of this,the times are changing, and looks like not for the better .Peace for you and your family."
"I had not seen Jr in years. He was always a kind hearted guy. R.I.P. Jr"
"I loved sitting at the kitchen table at grandma layfields as the "boys" would be cutting up deer to ground and uncle jr would let me drop the meat in. I remember feeling so big. And then I got to crank it a couple times. And when he would drive us up the hill in his truck to the cabin and sometimes when it was muddy we would slide a bit and he would just be giggling like a lil boy while we were bouncing around!"
"RIP JR. Always a kind and gentle person. Thank you for always treating me as a friend. You will be missed."
"Such a kind man with a heart of gold, and that giggle could make anyone smile! You may be gone but you will never be forgotten, you will never know how many lives you touched. Prayers to all the friends and family, you will be greatly missed!"
