Beth, I am so very sorry for the loss your family has suffered. Being a daddy's girl myself I remember how awful it was when my own dad passed away. I'm positive he is in a better place, but that doesn't make it that much easier on those of us left behind.. Remember wonderful things. You and your family are all in my thoughts and prayers babe. Luv Ya, Lori

Everyone who ever met JJ knew that he had many friends. He helped shape many men and women's lives through youth sports. Although he never coached me, he was a mentor for me in my life. Although this is a very difficult time for his friends and family, be strong in knowing what a wonderful man he was. Dewayne Setliff
