    Always loved to see this guy’s smiling face. He came out to jump start my car and unlock it for me a few times. And he always had a smile on his face. He will be missed by me and my family. And I’m sure lots of others. He sure was a great young man. And I’m sure God is welcoming him home. May God be with the family and friends at this time.
