Bobby, Jackie, Joey,
I have so many wonderful memories of your dad. He drove me every morning to ACHS in order for me to attend high school. He always had “extra” fried fish and fries for the neighborhood kids. When your parents put in the pool, everybody was welcome. I also cherish the times that we spent at the camp at the lake. He was always there to put the worm on the hook for me. I will forever remember he and Aunt Lucie Mae. My heart goes out to you all for your loss.
