We mourn the loss of our brother Jesse James. Jesse woke up on Saturday morning December 3, 2011 and had a massive heart attack. He really was a likeable guy. He went through some bad days in Vietnam. They haunted him most of his life, like so many other vets. May GOD rest your soul now Jesse and be at peace.



Ralph passed away in Nashville at the VA Hospital after a brief illness. One of the most likeable people you could ever meet. While faced with many problems he never gave up his faith in GOD. We can be assured he will be helping to assist in serving our creator on the golden streets of heaven. Go in peace Brother Ralph
