I was just talking about him the other day… he gave me my first speeding ticket. He was so kind. It was my first ticket & I was very young & thought I was going to jail. He was so kind. It was on Franklin Road. My last speeding ticket I left court & went across the street to his funeral. May he rest in peace.
