To know Jr. was to love Jr.  He never met a stranger, he was the epitome of a social butterfly.  He didn’t care who you were, he would still talk to you.  His favorite phrase was “Put my number in your phone”.  Everywhere he went, he would always see somebody that he knew, whether he was in the county or out of the county.  Jr. was currently attending Post University for Business Management and kept an A/B grade average each semester.  He was also fluent in sign language.  Jr. was excited about starting his own business.
