  • Uncle Junior, I will miss you greatly as your spirit will always be with me as I travel the roads. I remember you coming to get me every month to take that road trip to Philly. Trust me, I couldn’t wait to hit the road. I use to sit in the back seat of the car while you talked to me about when I get old enough to drive I needed to pay close attention to my signs or I would get lost! Well, I think you would be proud of me for maybe a few wrong turns, in my life time of driving. But, I never got lost even before a GPS! Your skills, your knowledge, your wisdom and love of peace, you always gave me will be cherished forever in my heart ❤️ until we meet again on the road to heaven! And you where right! Traveling is a great way to feel free!

    Love Always,
    DEB
