Junior was such a gentle man. Some of my earliest memories are of him. Going to the Georgia School for the Blind back in the late '50s early '60s. We travelled to Macon before the Interstate was built. Now I pass by it once or twice a month living near Macon. He was always well dressed and sweet. He never complained. I can never remember him being mad. Even thought he was hindered with health problems he would not talk about them. Always would ask about me and my family. When I watch the old Black and White TV show "Gunsmoke" and the character "Chester" comes on. He reminds me of Jr. Always trying to do the right thing in his own way. May not have been right. But, he tried. We never knew he was ill and in the care of Hospice. It was only a few weeks ago I talked to him. Not one word about being ill. Jr, I love you and I will miss you. Not too many people like you any more. I know your mother is lost now. I love you Aunt Lois. Just remember as long as we remember him he did not die. He is still here in our hearts.
Junior was a wonderful man. He was my cousin. I have not seen him in some time but, we always talked on the phone. Some of my earliest memories involve him. I remember going to Macon in the Late '50s early '60s to visit him while he was going to the Georgia School for the Blind. This was before Interstate 75 was built. Now, I drive by it once or twice a month living near Macon. I remember him always been so well dressed and sweet. Legally Blind and hindered thought life by this. Yet, he never complained. I can never recall him being mad at anyone. Now, sometime with watching the old Black and White TV show "Gunsmoke" and the character "Chester" is on. I think of Jr. Why? Because like Chester he always tried to do the right thing in his own way. Chester's Coffee was always call "undrinkable," well if my memory serves me correct, Jr's Coffee was bad too. But, he always wanted you to feel at home. He would pick up on our talk from the last time even if it had being a year since I had seen him. People like Jr. are one of a kind. Sweet and kind-hearted no matter what was going on with him. He died the same way.Not too many of us knew he was even in the care of Hospice. The last time we talked, only a few weeks ago he did not mention anything being wrong. I noticed he was short of breathe but, suffering from Lung problems for so long I did not give it much notice other than mentioning it to my family.Now, he is gone. Too soon. He was loved and he loved back. No matter like Jr. was always the same. Not too many like him. he made my life better just being in it. I love you and I will miss you
