Our sincerest & deepest condolences to the Love of his life..Ruthie, and to ALL his family & friends. He had MANY! I can’t think of a time that we spoke, that we didn’t start & end the conversation with a laugh. We teased each other in Creole. He was a Special kinda guy. May he Rest In Peace. Never to be forgotten. Ruthie.. May God wrap his loving arms around you & comfort you. I so wish that I could be there with you & for you my life long friend/sister. Love, Joycie & Cliff 💝 Sending Prayers, Love, & Hugs.
