Jewel Edward Twilley Jr.

October 23, 1956 — January 30, 2022

Dad, you were the strongest man we knew. You pushed through every day, even when the pain was constant. You had such a wildlife full of big dreams and roads you paved. Thank you for being the man you were…Thank you for showing us what love means. Thank you for not judging us anytime we needed to talk. We will always remember that smirk you gave when you were up to no good and the way you talked to strangers like you knew them for years. You held onto family so hard, you kept your hands clenched. We will not forget that love and we will continue what you started. You worried about us until the very end. I hope you know we will be ok because of the things you taught us. We love you, dad. You are our sunshine, and we will miss you dearly.
