I knew Dr. Jewell and his sons very well. He didn't have a mean bone in his body and was quite the listener if you had ANY problems. I can never remember leaving his home without food or water. If we needed three bucks for gas, he gave us ten. Both his sons were like that also. HEY Jerrod, you have a great light to lead you; your pops was inspiring.
