My children and I will miss Uncle JR dearly! We visited him often when we would go visit my grandmother (his sister-in-law) at the nursing home. He didn’t always remember me, but he always told me he knew that he knew me and loved the children and that we took time to visit him. I loved listening to his stories and he was so open with sharing his love for Christ. It is something that I truly admired about him. My daughter, Quinna, would make him colorful cards and little arts and crafts. She always begged me to go find Uncle JR! The last time we got to visit him, before he fell ill, was Valentine’s Day. We brought him a card, and got to sit down in the lobby with him to celebrate with Oldies music, floats and French fries! He was tired that day, but said he really wanted those treats! We will very much miss him. Poor Quinna was broken-hearted about his passing. With his love of the Lord, we know he is in heaven. Hopefully he is making us all that great peanut brittle he used to make:)

J R was my uncle. He was always a snappy dresser and he and my aunt were wonderful people. I haven't seen him in years but my sister says he liked to talk at the assisted living where he and my mother live. An end of the great generation of people who lived through the forties and fifties in their prime. What stories they had and places they traveled and saw after being raised in the country of Mississippi. They were lucky because they all were well educated.
