I was at a loss for words when I got the news of his passing. The first time I ever saw him or met him was around the time his brother and my grandfather, Thomas, was in the hospital in late 2014/early 2015 down here in Virginia. I am still trying to get to know my family so I was still getting to know him. He seemed like a kind, interesting man and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
