    So sorry to hear this. I loved working with him, Buford, and Kenny at Augusta Correctional Center. If I was mad about something any one of them would get you to laugh and get your mind off of the problem. At least for a little while. He will be missed. Sorry I could not attend any of the services but I had to work. Prayers go out to his family.
