Sending my love and condolences to family and friends. Jamey was a one of a kind. Not one person could read “A Cajun Christmas Story” like Jamey! It didn’t matter the season, memories were made. I mean big memories! It didn’t matter if it was a catapulting turkey or goofy picture b…I won’t finish because some things are sacred. Jamey may you find ever lasting peace and know you have always held a special place in my heart. All you ever needed to do was give me the “look” of understanding. Love you forever.
