On January 12, 2013, my brother awakened to what he thought would be a normal Saturday for him. As it turns out it was not.
He went to a friend’s to get a goat and while he was there he had a heart attack. The friends’ names were Gerald and Yvonne Witherspoon. They have a little boy named John.
John went with my brother to the lot to get the goat. When my brother passed out, John being only five went 1000 yards to get his mother. Mrs. Witherspoon immediately started CPR and continued until her other son, David Witherspoon, arrived to take over.
David never gave up on him while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. I am so thankful that a five year old knew to get help. Although my brother did not survive I am so thankful for Mr. and Mrs. Witherspoon, David and John.
You all never gave up on James. You all deserve a gold metal. You all will always be very special to my family.
Thank you, from Amy, Jonathan, Lynn, Rita, Trey, Chris, Kate and Freda.
