To the family of J.T. What a great pleasure it was to know and hang around with JT. My heart was broken to read of his passing, however I am reminded that the Lord God Almighty has our days numbered, and everything is in His hands and in His timing, and not ours. I will long remember JT for who he was, and what a great friend he was. May you find the peace that passes all understanding, found only in the heart of God, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Lean on Him for your strength, for He is able to provide all things during this time of need. Gary Tollefson
