My Best Friend "Choo-Choo" from Paramount high school. I remember Choo-Choo would walk me to my locker, carrying my books and be late to class because of it. I had Choo-Choo's letterman jacket after we graduated in 1988. Even while he was at school in Grambling I still had it. When he passed, I took it to get "Choo-Choo" embroidered on the front. My cousin and I took a 23 hour drive from California, through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, to Louisiana to the funeral and then Mississippi for the burial. After the funeral, I presented his mom with his letterman jacket. (Photo: My son wearing the jacket) That was so hard for me to part with since that was something I had of my best friend, but I knew his mom deserved it. I miss Choo-Choo dearly. His memory lives on.
Choo-Choo passed from a blood clot.
