    Aunt Joyce, Terry and family, I was so saddened to hear of Junior's passing. He was one of a kind. When Bruce passed away, Junior was such a calming presence in the face of the storm that we were in. I do not know what we would have done without him. He was loved deeply by all of this family and we will never forget him! Joyce, Terry and the rest of the family, please do not hesitate to call if there is something that we can do to help. WE LOVE you all! Alan and Kathy McKinney Jackson Chris & Brittany Jackson Thornbuty
