Dear family of Junior's...I know it's really hard for you right now! I will keep you all in my prayers. I liked Junior so much, his punching fun at everyone, his serious side and his honesty! Junior had a good heart and he sure did love his family!

Junior was a BIG part for my success at Lowe's (of Franklin) in the 1980's as Installed Coordinator. He will be missed!
Blessing and our Prayers to the whole family!
