J.'s mom made a scrapbook for his birthday, collecting stories, letters and pictures from friends and family who knew J. as a child. His pastor recounted this story:
"I remember your words when you were a little boy in nursery school. You had crawled under Gramma's house to get a kitten and I asked, 'But weren't you afraid under there?' You said, "The Lord is under there, too.' J., remember the Lord is everywhere."
