Junior's friendship was a treasure that he shared readily with all he met. He and his entire family has always been a major contributor to the wonder and beauty of the Pickens community. He will be sorely missed but we take comfort in the knowledge that he can now spread joy and happiness without end. The world would be a better place if there were more Juniors around.
