JT was such a good friend first to my son Jesse Longoria and his crowd. He took time to share life with Jesse and teach him many things about life. I was so happy to have JT part of our family. I started visiting him with Jesse and we would sit in the house, 'bunkered down' he would say. He was so much fun to talk with and enjoyed every moment with him. We loved to talk about military life and living with all the jargon and lifestyle. He came to my house one day this year and brough spaghetti for all of us to enjoy together, Blake Nikki and Terra many of us there. He was such a joy to have in the house and hoped to do many more of these get-togethers. He was so happy to be marrying his sweetheart and talked of her often. I recall a facebook conversation we had with another friend and he was so full of honor the way he talked and stood his ground. I certainly enjoyed him everytime we were together.
JT I know you are in a place that is free of pain sorrow and suffering. I only wished that the pain would go away for you one day. All of your valient days in the military. The 'outhouse' blowing up around you, and yet you were still untouched. You were told to be untouchable. Went through so many tours of duty in dangerous places. Jesse loves you shirt that you gave him. He wears it with honor. You had said you were blown up in that shirt and yet not one touch to your body. But the mind you stuggled with so harshly. I cried many days in my heart for your soul that struggled after serving so hard for your country. I love you JT and I respect you greatly. You will always be part of my life! and my heart! Thank you for all you are and all you have done for me and for my family. JT it is an honor to know you my friend. Today you are free!!! Love from us the longoria/Spencer family!
