Mr Ace had a great sparkle in his eye when it came to reminiscing on the great high school football games back in the day with the Ray Texans and Miller rivals. We had so much fun talking sports and Family. But his love for Jesus was what he boasted about the most.
He was a great friend and mentor to me.
May God bless him and his family.
