A very sad day… our hearts go out to the family of Jessie Davis.
We were at a bar-b-q this evening over at Grandma Ida & Papa Joe’s house. A bunch of people from Gene’s side of the family showed up, including 2 little boys – 6 and 2. The 6 year old was playing with my boys and my boys wanted to play American Gladiators. Jace climbed up on top of a large rock, crossed his fists in front of him, yelled, “I am Laser!” and jumped from the rock. The six year old had no idea what Jace was doing, so he pointed his finger like a gun at Jace and pretended to shoot him. Jace then played out the whole “I’m dying” act. Grabbed his chest, yelled out, “Ooooohhhhh……. you got me!” and fell to the ground in slow motion, tongue hanging out and everything. A few minutes later, he jumped up and yelled, “I got alive again. Nothing can keep Laser down!”
