    So blessed that I have gotten to know Jasper over the last year as he has been a special friend to my mom and made her days a little brighter. I’m thankful the Lord worked it out for my mom to be there with him as we are having to find a new place for mom. I know God had her there for a reason. She loved being his friend. I’m thankful they got to be crowned King and Queen :) and bless each other.

    I met Mr. Jasper at Windsor Point when visiting my Mom. He always had a smile and a few kind words to share. I’m sorry for the temporary separation. I’m sure that he’ll linger in the heart of the folks that know and love him. “Generous and faithful Stewart of the blessings God afforded him”, such an honorable statement.

  3. Dorothy Ann Adams

    Dear Marty and family just saw this today. Not a frequent face book participate. Your father and my Aunt Sally lived an almost fairy tale life. I so enjoyed visiting them when they lived at Myrtle Beach and I lived in Charleston. I always admired him as a successful individual. Believe my aunt Sally was blessed to have married him and he her. He was always a valuable influence to the Adams family. I know he is in a better place. God bless you and all of your family. Anne Adams
