Some of the people we talked with said it’s important to show their support for Cash.

“He was one of ours,” Lonnie Thorn said. “He’s been around for a while and he was a good man. I’ve had run-ins with him a couple times, but never seen nothing like this. Just to show support, to tell you the truth.”

“I knew Jody personally,” Sam Warner said. “Jody was a good boy. I knew him personally, dealt with him a little bit. He deserves all the honor and respect. People need to understand what they go through on a daily basis.”
