CommentsI spent four year with 62 and have very good memories of that time. I was given the nickname Heavy be BMC Faulkner because I was 6'2 and weighed 140 pounds with sand in my pockets. I'm still 6'2 but at 250 the nickname is more applicable. I have five children and a grandbaby now and work as an assistant principal at a middle school in Virginia Beach.
