Junior was a "people" person. He could start up a conversation with anyone and loved to fellowship! If you needed to know about a good place to eat, he was your go to man. In our Sunday School class, he was always ready to pray and willing to participate. We shared the love of coffee and he made sure he had a cup ready for us. Although we are sad and will miss him, we believe he is now fellowshipping in Heaven!! And for that we rejoice!! Wanda, our hearts are full of love for you.
