    Jr. was a hero to me..A cousin that I looked up to that taught me some important things about life.I am so happy I got to see him the other night and tell him that I loved him!!!From the best model cars I have ever seen that had real springs from ink pens when we were kids to helping me change out the transmission in my El camino a few years ago….We were tightening the Transmission bolts and he said I wasnt doing good enough…He took the wrench from me and told me I needed to man up…Everytime I tighten a bolt now I think of him telling me I need to man up…Im gonna miss my cousin and I am so glad that he was my cousin!!!I know he loved his Mom and Sister and Debbie,but I think Ashley was the brightest star in his sky.You will be missed my friend,but never forgotten!!!!Until I see you on the other side…
