    So sorry to hear of Heavy's passing. We both worked with him at Elby's. Such a nice person. Over the years we would run into him in the local stores and he would always stop to chat a bit and called us by name. With all the people he had to have known it never ceased to amaze and impress us that he knew us by name after all those years. He made us feel special. He was the special one.
