    Nancy, Joan, John, and Jean, I often look back on all of the times spent with Junior, my Dad, and John. We shared a lot of good times and had a lot of good laughs whether Junior and my Dad were taking John and I hunting, trout fishing, or to Deltaville to fish out on the Bay. Junior will be greatly missed!
