Who else is going to call me in the middle of the night just to annoy me for no reason? I enjoyed our midnight conversations about your conspiracy theories and we would laugh at so many things. Barbara is my close friend but you were a close friend too and I will miss you so much. P.

He’d call & talk for hours. We’d put it on speaker phone & just listen while he told us a loooooonnnnnnnnggggggg story.
He’d leave messages hollering where y’all at! Pick up that phone. I know y’all are there & say all kind of funny , hysterical things. He’d scream out my husbands whole name, saying where you at ____ where you at _______!!!! If I ever felt bad he was always sympathetic & he always told me he’d pray for me. He’d do anything in the world for us. We’ll sure sure miss him. He was a faithful friend.
