My family and the Walkers literally ran into each other on registration day at Kincaid Elementary's front door. I have known them since I was six years old, basically grew up together. Was so special as my mom didn't know any Filipino's in Georgia and we lived five minutes apart! Spent many wonderful get togethers at each other's homes. Jennings passing is like losing a family member for me and my family. Our deepest sympathies for your loss, all family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers.
