i met Sock when he dated my sister years ago. We would run into each other occasionally. He really liked my mom who passed in last September. He never failed to send her flowers every Christmas.

Thank you for looking out for me over the years we were together. 5 th grade Taylor Elmentary, Jefferson always made sure I had food to eat, especially on out of town track meets and where sometimes I would eat so much, I could not finish the race😏. then we made it happen at Abilene Cooper. Love you always. Please hug you mother for me as I know heaven is rejoicing as you both embrace after such a long journey back to each other!

Your littl buddy always
