Such a sweet and gentle spirit, never judge mental, all ways gave me great advice. One of my motivators. I use to always stay in trouble and he was the transporting officer that all ways dropped me off to the next facility ♀ We would talk the entire ride. He was like a father figure for me at the time when I needed guidance the most. He will me deeply missed, his smile, conversation, and most of all his wisdom.
My condolences to the family. Sending blessings and prayers your way.
