Jody's heart was so kind and she was very gracious! When my cabinet shop suffered a fire and destroyed most of the equipment Jody donated her woodworking equipment to us. Because of Jody we were able to get back in business quicker. We will think of Jody everyday we use her table saw and other tools. Again we are sooo thankful to Jody and Bruce!!!

Dear Bruce,I am so very sorry to hear about Jody. She asked me many years ago if I would say a few words at her funeral, and we always joked about that, but I think she might have been serious. I regret deeply that I cannot be there for your service for her. We are in Berlin, Germany serving a mission for the Church. I think I know why Jody asked me to say a few words at her service. I believe it was because we shared so many laughs together. She had a wonderful sense of humor and so very many times she always used her sense of humor in telling about all of her experiences of mishaps and dog bites.I will miss her emails, but know that she did enjoy life greatly.I know you will see Jody again and that her passing is just another part of our journey through eternity.Roy and Marlene Gibson

Bruce, I was so sorry to see that Jody has passed away. She was a very kind and sweet person and I am so sorry for your loss. I remember seeing her take her early evening walksaround the neighborhood when I still lived there in South Weber. Jody always had a smile or a wave as she passed by. I am sure she is at peace now and no longer suffering with the health issues that I hear have plagued her in more recent years. With Deepest SympathyTerry

My deepest sympathy to Uncle Bruce. Aunt Jolene was always kind and caring. My favorite memory of her was coming over when she got her new dog pepper. She was so happy that day. I always have admired how intelligent and talented she was. She will be missed.

Dear Bruce, Jay and Mary Lynn,I'm broken heart over the passing of sweet Jolene . She had the biggest heart of anyone I ever came in contact with. She was so good to me and my children. How I miss miss seeing her at the family events and the car shows will never be the same. I remember the day she showed me the Studebaker when you first bought it and my whole family rode n the back seat. I always felt so welcome in your home. Bruce. The world today is missing a angel while heaven is gaining one. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. All my love ,Julie
