My sister and I met him at a wedding(Hamby)we were impressed by his kindness and personality. He was a handsome, adorable and precious young man. We were impressed. He spent time with us that evening talking, sharing, just like family. I often thought about him. It saddens me that such a precious soul has left us. Until we meet again..marriage supper of the Lamb. We will celebrate once more.
