Regrettably, I do not possess the words to write anything magnanimous enough to provide any amount of relief to JD's family and friends after learning of his passing. Regardless, I am so very, very sorry to learn that JD has passed. JD touched the lives of so many people, mine included. JD was a good, decent, and caring man and the world is a lesser place without JD. JD has always been and always will be a giant in my world. Shawn Siders
