To all of E. J.'s Family. I am deeply saddened by E. J.'s Passing. We used to play together at my Grand Mothers house in Donaldsonville when we were young. I remember us having a syrup top nailed to a stick for a wheel and we had so much fun pushing it and saying Put Put as we ran pushing watching it roll. What fun we had in those days. Never were bored. All of you are in my prayers.
