As much as I like the pink candle, I did the blue one for you. (Go Cats) We go back 30 years. You're one of the first people I met at the VA in Lexington and who knew we would've spent the last 20+ years together at the Little Rock, VA. You will always have a special place for sure. Not even sure this has fully hit me yet. I've been cleaning out your apartment every day and Man if you were here, I would've already jumped all over you about some things. Lol. I know you know that about me. Good thing for memories. It's not goodbye it's just I'll see you again someday. Prayers for your mom, dad, sisters, brothers & all the family & friends that knew you. You will be forever missed & are loved by so many. 💙 Sabra

It was certainly my honor to be your high school football teammate my brother. To hear that Jackson name after we made catches was special because whether it was you or me, just hearing the name broadcast over the stadium sounded good. I'm sure Rodney Williams would say the same about your first names too. Rest in Peace my brother!
