Just learning today of Junie’s death and am so sorry I did not know sooner. I loved Junie so very much. He and Alan spent many Holidays and celebrations laughing and joking with my family in my home. He will be missed and will always be in my prayers. I know he is finally at peace and happy to be in heaven with his beloved Marylin.

My fondest memories with my paran is my days walking two houses down and see him cutting the grass. I remember I would help him sweep The broom was taller than me, but with his patience, he would show me how to handle the broom. My sweep job was not the greatest. Then he would tell me, good job and would give me a quarter and tell me to go buy a coke.
Then as I got older, the days we played basketball in the driveway. He helped me to be a good player. No doubt of that. I was the only 6th grader on the 7th grade basketball team in school. Thank you, Paran for the great memories, there is so many to list.
I love you.
