    I wanted so much to be there today ,however,could not make it happen. I doubt if Luther ever mentioned me, but, he & I worked together at the Winn -Dixie 5th & Castle. He was my produce manager - I always told him that he was not capable of being as tough as he thought he was. I learned a lot from Luther . A good quality man.
