I consider myself lucky to be called friend by JR, our circles included Cigars and Poker, and just general having around. I wish I had been able to spend more time these last few years, but I am grateful I have the memories that we shared... my prayers go out to Miss Alice and JRs family and friends, for he will surely be missed...
