Even though Jed didn’t always feel like going and doing things when my boys would go out to see him and their grandparents he would go outside and play catch with my oldest son and would take him on the riding lawn mower and would help my son wash his grandparent’s car. When my youngest was a baby Jed would always wake up and watch him when he was out and his grandparent’s he would always make sure that he was safe. He would hold him and watch TV. Jed was always happy to see the boys and would do anything for them. I know that Jed is in a better place and is looking down on his family making sure that everything is going just right. He will always be missed by his family and remembered for everything he did for his family and friends.
