I was very sorry to hear the news yesterday of the passing of Purcell. We literally grew up together and we didn't call him Purcell. "Big Moma" called him Junior and that's what we called him as kids. We later called him Moose. I have no idea where that name came from. We used to stand in front of this large mirror at Big Moma's house and sing. My most vivid memory of that was once when we sang "Stand By Me." You had a tough life Moose and now it's time for you to rest and there will be only peace for now. Steve
