Jr and Dorothy have been dear friends to my family for many decades. My heart is full of sadness for the family, but I know him and Dorothy are happily together again. Jr will be missed.
This is Jr and Uncle Lawrence in the river bottoms.

What an awesome story about this man. Though I only met him one time, he apparently was a good man. Rest with God Mr Risinger
