    When you have had the privilege to know someone like JB and the chance to witness the way he loved people and life, you know the Lord has done a work. Few of us can remember a situation when JB was not able to find something positive to say. I expect the only “negative” thing we will hear from his raspy voice is when his relatives and friends arrive in heaven – “What took you so long!” He loved and now his reward is with our Lord.

  3. We love you sooooo much and pray for you daily. We pray that our Glorious Father may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. We pray that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His inheritance and His incomparably great power. Eph 1:17 – 19

    As I reflect on all the wonderful times JB and our families spent together in the High Sierras when he and I were just kids………it seems impossible he has left us at such an early age. But I firmly believe he is gathering his rewards for his service to God while he lived and loved in this “world gone mad,” That fact calms me. Please accept Ginny’s an my condolences and may He give you and your family strength through this grieving period. I will never forget JB. Nor will anyone else who met and learned from him.
