I have to give this man a lot of credit for being what I am today. He was all of us Mosley's right arm, especially us Girls, Lois, Catherine and Loretta, as he was our School Teacher. With out his love for us, he took us places we were not able to go without him. Also he was a good friend to our Parents, Jim and Roxie Mosley. We all love him and he will be missed around London and Fogertown. May God bless his family.
