    As many of you know, my wife Judy and I have been caring for her brother, James (J.P.) Morgan, in our home since before we were married 5 years ago. He has had all sorts of medical problems for several years. Well, he went into the V.A. Hospital again for some tests just before Christmas. While my wife and I were painting the kitchen tonight, we got a phone call telling us that J.P. had passed away at 7:15pm this evening. This sure isn't what we had in mind for our 5th New Years Eve together.

    J.P. was a fine man who served 4 years in the Army in Vietnam doing Special Operations from 1966 to 1970. He was very proud of being a veteran, as his father was, and very proud to have served his country. He was also a fisherman. I shared a lot of pictures and stories from the BOC with him in the last few years and he loved it. A BOC brother was kind enough to help us hook up with a fishing guide a few years ago at Smith Mountain Lake for J.P.s last catfishing trip. He had a ball and we talked about the trip often. He will be missed. [R.I.P. Sgt. James Preston Morgan Dec. 31, 2009]

    Billie; It brings immense sadness to my heart to hear of the passing of your brother-in-law. I lost my father December 31 1983. Like your brother-in-law, he was a veteran, of WWII and a cat fisherman. Your family has my most sincere and heart felt condolences. Earl

    Thanks, my dad has stage 3 lung cancer. He is about to start his second round of chemo. Double what it was before. I have a bad feeling.
