I didn't know Winford long, only the past 3 or 4 years, but I was happy to have known him. He shopped at my Home Depot and we had fun any time he was in the store. I knew he was having health issues but he was strong and a fighter. He was someone I was happy to have met in my life. I will miss him, and yes I got to address him as "Wink". My condolences to the family. Rob Horowitz (Bethlehem,Ga)
