"In my dad, my Grandfather had a best little buddy, his brilliant adorable sidekick," the mother-of-three continued. "They were two peas in a pod, until my Grandfather lost his life in an accident."

"At 11 years old my dad became man of the house — working a paper route, setting up pins at the bowling alley, helping his mother take care of things at home," explained Jennifer. "Kind men at church took little Billy Jack under their wing, got him involved with Boy Scouts, pointed him toward college (You’ve never met an Aggie more proud to be an Aggie)."
