    Going to miss our dear, dear friend. Hardee’s breakfasts won’t be the same without you sitting across from us. Going to miss all the times we lingered over coffee just reminiscing of days long gone.

    Sorry to hear of Junior’s passing. It was a pleasure to work with him all those years at Peterbilt. He was a wonderful person who I thought of very highly I’m sorry I did not find out until after his service. My prayers are with your family.
