I met you John when we were just kids at Eloise Church of God. Many many years ago. I know you will be sadly missed. See you again in heaven. Prayers to your family.

My Uncle D was THEE man's man. He was the definition of cool. He always kept his word. And if you told him something,and shook his hand,he held you to it. I could call him. Rain or shine. Day or night. And he was there. He told me yes when my Nene told me no. There was no other man that was as stable or consistent in my life as he was. Besides my grandfather. I could go on and on . But I will save those memories for family time. He fought harder and longer than anyone I know . Now his fight is over. He won. He's resting and rejoicing with loved ones that he missed when he was here on earth with us. I miss him really bad. And I can't stand thinking about not being able to call 1177 and not hearing his voice saying " what's u Slim" or we love you to baby" . I'll always keep him In my heart.
Go Army
Go Gators
