    I remember when Junior would come to our house when i was a kid. I have a letter he wrote me some years back when I first started my family tree. My Dad (Larry Harris) and I never made it over to see him. He was such a nice person. I was just thinking about him a week ago and then I get this news that he had passed yesterday. God Bless you Junior.-á-á
