Bird, my brother from another mother. Those high school years with you as one of my friends were some of the best of my life. My sorrow is deep and my sympathy goes out to Joe and family. We had some great times. I also want to acknowledge Jibber’s help to my son, Karl when he was in need. Thanks again, brother.

Joe and Family,
I was shocked to get the news from Susie last night. Jibber was one of my best friends from our youth. Always positive and cheerful when I came back home. I’ll miss him. My best wishes to you and the rest of the family.

JIBBER WAS A KIND SOUL, ALWAYS TAKING A BACK SEAT TO Dot, Tom, and Joe. Jimmy Thompson always said Jibber was the most kind, gentle, best Young of all. Brother Joe took good care of Jibber for which friends are thankful.

Some of my fondest memories growing up were good times with Jibber. Never at a loss for words in any situation, he always stood out of the herd. Boredom never existed when we were together. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. Gary
