Nekole, I can't believe it has been 4 years. I am so glad I had the chance to know your dad and work with him at the diner. He was always there to make me laugh and feed me a grecian hamburger steak ;-) I love ya'll!

Nekole, I best remember your Dad when he was in charge of the parking for the home football games at Central....always there and dependable. It was obvious when talking to him that he was very proud of you.
