I met JR at the 8am Sagemont Service in 2009 or 2010. He was sitting by himself in the center section so I went and sat with him. I couldn't believe how old he was considering how stong and sharp he was. I offered him a Werthers candy and he was obliged to take one...or two. We talked about the Astros and current events. He went AWOL but I found him at the Pearland nursing home. I visited with books and Werthers. ... I'll miss JR he was a Great American.
