You sure are missed, Junior! A man with a million dollar smile! I know you had your hard times as we all do, but you sure did have a heart of gold! We miss you so much! You taught us kindness, empathy, and discipline. I miss hearing you talk about your family, music, and your life’s work. Hugs and love to all your family and friends. We wish we’d known you longer!

My uncle Junior, gave me my first guitar when I was about 10 years old, never learned to play it, but I loved that thing just because my uncle a professional guitar player gave it to me. His wife Ruth was like a second mother to me, my mother would sometimes say that Aunt Ruth probably loved me as much or more than she did. My cousin Carolyn allowed me the honor of being the ring bearer in her wedding. They were by far my favorites. Sometimes when Junior would call our house he would speak in a strange voice if I answered just to prank me. He did have a unique sense of humor. I regret having lost track of him after my parents passed. But I am sure we will meet again some day, until then I'll just play one of his CD's until we do.

My dad’s older brother and a man who loved to pick his guitar . Fond memories of earlier times when he came to my house for family picnics; playing horseshoes with dad and laughing and having fun together. They were each hilarious thinking they were better than the other. I loved my uncle and I’m thankful he’s finally made it home.

I was honored to have Jr as a brother in the Lord! I will miss his smile and the way that he always made me laugh! I look forward to seeing him again, and to be able to worship the Lord while in His presence!!! My prayers have and will continue to be with you at this most difficult time. If there is anything that I can do please let me know!!
