I am so sorry to learn of JR death. When the boys and I were small, Loyal brought them often to Fountain's Gro. at Tilly. There are people that we never forget, and Loyal and his two boys are in that category. May our loving God bless Junior's family during this time of grief and sorrow.

So sorry about Uncle JR. He was a sweet man who always made me laugh. I will never forget how he would tuck is in so tight on cold nights that we couldn't move our feet. Always makes me smile. I love you all and I love you JR.
