I am so sorry to hear about the death of my good friend, TJ. I saw him last about 8 months ago when i was passing through Texas. He and I worked together at La Choy Foods and were roommates at eveery meeting. I will miss him so much becasue he was my last connection to a great period during my life at La Choy. I know he is with Patsy and he is a lot happier. I will miss listening to his Texas drawl when we used talk. To TJ 's family I know you miss your Dad but he and Patsy are finally together in Heaven with Jesus. My thoughts are with you. My thought and prayers are with you.
