RJ and I are first cousins. I never knew him as an adult as I left Glasgow after high school. But I have vivid memories of him as a little boy. My parents, my brother Bobby, and I, spent many Sunday afternoons at Uncle Rumsey and Aunt Wilma's farm. RJ, Thomas, Kay, our cousins Charlotte and Claudette, and Bobby and I, would play in their yard all afternoon. I remember RJ as energetic and fun-loving with an infectious laugh.
I extend my deepest sympathy to all of his family. His passing is a real loss to our generation.
