What a nice guy he was, I remember as a kid seeing him drive by on his way to see his mother, such a good son. Later on as an adult I saw the love he had for his children and grand children. How they enjoyed have breakfast at IHOP. My thoughts and prayers for you all. Tina, so sadden to hear of your loss. My regards to your momma and aunt Elaine. I know you all will miss him so much.
