Debbie, Jennifer, Monica! What a great man he was, without doubt, the best of the best and there’s no one like him today we in the world, lost a great man, as he will always be loved by many I wish they made more men like him. He’s always been in my thoughts and always will be. He helped me a lot, and was always good to me. Jimbo
