    I did not get the honor to meet this gentlemen, but I know he is kind, heart is full of love, and cares for everybody. How do I know? Because I have the pleasure of working with his step daughter, Beverly, that he raised. I know she has all these traits, so she must of learned them from somewhere, because they don’t come natural. May you rest in piece.
