Sorry to hear of Junior's passing. My Mother used to tell a story about when Junior was little and he couldn't pronounce his name properly. He would say: AHii Juniii Humfii or something like that. I always addressed Junior this way. It was a standing joke between us through all these years. Rest in peace Cousin.
Condolences to the Humphries family during this difficult time.
Terry Houser and Family.
