I will always remember J.B. as the uncle with the shy, mischievous smile. He would always try to keep tabs on Kendell and myself while we were playing as children to keep us out of trouble. He would try to be stern all the while having a soft and tender heart. He was the tallest of all the Tripp siblings, but never too big for his nieces and nephews. My family will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers and we love you very much!
