    My condolences to the entire Feagin Family. As I reflect on Jr, I remember him as a great choir director. When Jr would visit my Uncle Eugene I would always rush down to hear the banter and corny jokes they would tell each other. They definitely had a bromance. Keep his memory close to your hearts ❤️
