I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with J.R. at Coca-Cola for many years in Orlando. Even with the long time of seeing or speaking with him, I remember thinking of him only two weeks ago as I reflected on my career with Coca-Cola, and the many fine people I worked alongside. He was a very vibrant man, who took his job seriously. My thoughts and prayers are with you this evening... God Bless!
