Estimated that well over 200 people came and went during this life changing party. With all the help from so many, the remembrance could not have been better. Jason’s mom and I just hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as we did. What I will always remember most is watching all his wheeling family arrive with long faces and tears in the eyes and leaving telling stories, laughing and naturally, giving each other a hard time. This is what Jason loved about you guys and please don’t change.

Last night I had one concern when leaving the “celebration”; after Fred from 4 Wheel & Off-Road told me they were planning a photo shoot and article on Jason and his truck and I heard several of his friends talking about what they need to do to complete this latest transformation, I was concerned if Jason would want his truck finished by someone other than him or just left as is. This concern was answered this morning when Jason told his mom “just get my baby home and keep her in a safe place; oh by the way, take her out sometime, it’s really fun – But please let someone else drive HA HA, I’ll let you know who I choose later HA HA!”

This let’s me know that Jason approves of everyone’s ideas with regards to completing his “baby” and his mom and I definitely will be taking her out sometime, but not driving. We love all you guys but remember; forget the fat guy in the red suit, Willyswanter’s Dad, the fat guy in the green shirt, is watching you so you better be good boys and girls.

That was very touching Ken. We all appreciate you giving us some insight on Jason that we did not know. That helps bring us even closer to our beloved brother. Wished I could have made it to the memorial but I was their in thought. I hope you and your wife will get to compete Jasons truck and enjoy it like he would want you to. He will be there riding right next to you enjoying it. Cliff

I can't imagine what Jason's dad and mom are going through right now, Ken, you seem to be a very strong man through all of this, my prayers are going out to your family


as they say, "the good die young", and from what I've seen, Jason was one of the best

Dear Mr and Mrs. Payne,
I am so glad that you were able to see how much Jason was loved by his fourwheelin friends. It is a blessing that you still have communication with him. My Father passed away in 2004 of esophagial cancer. He was hard of hearing and asked me to go to his specialist visit with him. I flew back to Michigan to go with him to to the doctor. His condition was so advanced they could not help him and he was not able to understand the doctor. I had to tell him he was terminal and it was the hardest thing I've ever done. He does not visit me but he communicates with my Mom, Wife, Son and Daughter. He especially was with Joe when he was in Iraq. My Dad was a WWII veteran and Joe said whenever he was in a bad spot he knew Grandpa was there with him. When he came home we were out on the patio and Joe started to cry and I asked what was wrong. He said nothing, Grandpa is here. He actually reached out to touch him! My purpose of this lenghty post is to let you know how lucky you are to have such a wonderful son who was loved by so many people, even though some of us never met him. Cherish the communication that you have with Jason and know that special people never leave, even though they are not here with us.

Here is the pic of the hood after everyone signed it on Saturday.



And not only did Jason make a lasting impression in my heart, He also made a lasting impression in my front yard. :2thumbs: Cracker gave me the good idea of making stepping stones out of cement with these as molds. Off to Lowes I go. :D

great idea!:anitoof:


that hood is a testament to how inspiring he really was. i dont think i see a signature that didnt write anyless than two sentences. and this is only a fraction of the people that he has touched!

Looking at that hood see all those signatures and the scratch/dent on the front left (looking at the pic) that he put on it while pushing off my front bumper while I was high centered in Calico the last time we wheeled together.
