So sorry to hear of Jody passing. He was one of a kind man and always willing to help me. He was the first person to ever fly the creature bull at my rodeos years ago. He just smiled at this idea when we talked about it. I also ran his small cranes for him at the paper mill and was always glad to see him with a big ol grin on his face every day. Just saw him the other day at the cafe in atkins. I will miss you Jody Peak.
