We are so very sorry to hear of J.C.'s passing. My dad says he was a nice man. Worked with him for years at the brickyard. Our heartfelt sympathies.

Nellie Overholt

I was so sorry to hear of JC's passing. He was a very gentle, kind, generous man. I enjoyed knowing him as part of my late husband's family. He enriched our lives and our family history with the photos he shared that his father had taken. We especially enjoyed listening to him tell stories of his life and family. I will miss him.
