Yesterday I lost a good friend.
Author, veteran, shooter, pilot, husband, father. JD Kinman died suddenly yesterday morning. JD was an Air Force veteran, one of my original alpha readers, and I was proud to be his on both the novels he wrote. He was putting the finishing touches on the third novel in his series and building his dream house in the hangar where he kept his airplanes when he died.
JD love to tell stories, shoot guns, poke fun at himself, and eat BBQ. We had collaborated a bit on my novel Twilight, where I ‘borrowed’ a couple of his characters, and he was going to use John Cronin in his third novel. Sadly, I won’t ever get the chance to drive over to the airport and pick him up after he flew in and go eat BBQ again.
JD didn’t want a funeral or flowers, he wanted to be cremated and people to celebrate his life.
Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.
Rest in peace.
