25 years ago I had the pleasure of meeting this amazing visionary. Helped pave the trails in the Environmental Testing Field. Thanks Jim for all the great times, laughs and jam sessions at your house. You will truly be missed brother. Rest in peace and God bless the Swords family.

So very sorry to hear of Pokes passing, would give anything to be able to make it to the service for him, would be so good to see all of y'all again and visit and reminisce old times. Just not physically able to make trip, please accept my heartfelt Condolences and sadness for your loss and my prayers are with each of you. I love y'all dearly as we are more family than friends and it seems the years just make the separation that much harder, Can still remember the day that y'all moved away and my best friend in the world and I rode with our Dads in the moving truck, thought that things would never be like they were and they weren't, but time has a way of healing these vacuums and we all made it in spite of the move. Once again please accept my most heartfelt condolences and know that I love you all and will be in prayer for the entire family! John D Winn Jr and family!
