    Jr was a good friend. He and I rode to work together at Duke Power. I remember the ride being very fast because he said he never liked to ride with a car in front of him. Jr taught my daughters and I how to drive a "straight drive" car and he did it with patience. He was a man with a big heart and a perfect neighbor to my mom. I will miss tooting the horn when I go by and seeing that big wave. I will miss him!

    Dear Carolyn and Wade, I am so sorry for your loss. Jr, was a very good friend of mine and also to my family. I met Jr,thru my father who has also gone on to Glory, and he was very, very nice to me as I was growing up in York. I will miss him coming thru town "wide open" in his red truck! I last talked to Jr, last week while he was on porch and he said he was alright and he smiled at me and I said, "luv you Jr," and he said, "luv you too!" To God be the Glory and may you "Rest in Peace my Brother!"
