Bay, man I don’t know we’re to start. We had so many great memories from, Augusta st. Go in and say hi to moms and to the refrigerator and straight to the basement. Big George was always out making that money. Thank you for always teaching us how to hustle in the streets and working at the Marriott restaurant together. I know you are in good hands with your buddy Merill Thornhill. Tell my dad, momma Alex and momma Patricia we all say hello and we will see y’all again. Love you man!!!
