Ms. Merline, Clint, Joey & Lisa,
So sorry to hear about Jun Jun. I don't get the Daily Iberian so I was reading the Obits on line Sunday and saw where he passed away. Sorry I missed the Services. Hope all is well with ya'll .
My fondest memory of Him was him digging those Coco weeds out of the Beautiful gardens he use to make. He worked really hard to keep those weeds out. LOL . Really loved ya'll as neighbors. Will keep ya'll in our prayers, take care of Mom.
