    Jr. and my Mother were first cousins. My mother’s Dad Theo Fite and Jr”s Mom Aunt Addie were brother and sister. Kaymo, I had just sit with you at the Mexican place talking and you told me about your dad .I am so sorry to hear that news. just know that my LOVE THOUGHT AND PRAYERS are with you and tell Billy and the family I will be praying for them too. Jr was such a great cousin and friend to Mother, always enjoyed talking and laughing together when we we were younger and go to Aunt Addies or Mama Fites, May God bless you all as you go through this time, I am sure Mother and Jr are having a good talk with all our loved ones in Heaven. if you need to talk call me at 931-625-0989.
