  5. Knoxie,
    J.R. and I have been friends since we were six years old. We grew up there in the Cliffside Valley. We shared a bonded childhood hikeing, riding bikes and roaming over the ranches that surrounded our homes. I will miss him so much. Call me if there is anything I can ever do for you.
