I remember Red from my years of working at Hi Delite restaurant in Greenville. I worked there when I graduated and Red among other regulars had a senior pic of me. I remember running into Red several times over the years and he always showed me that he still carried that picture. I am sure some of the family must have wondered who this was he carried a picture of! Those are fond memories for me also in remembering all the ‘regular’ customers that I grew to know in those years. I am sincerely sorry for your loss, I will always have memories of Reds smiles.
