My dear sweet friend..........I can't tell you all of the wonderful memories I have of us working together here in Zion for so many years........I still remember the first time you and Pat walked through our door. We became fast friends and I am guessing that was at least 14 years ago. We sure shared some great times and I can still picture you laughing. ........ Always a smile on your face. We loved talking about the various wars and I learned so much from you. I am so grateful that you have been a part of my life and I will never forget you. You were always a wonderful father figure to me after I lost my dad.

Until we meet again............I love you!

Here is the link for all who follow my blog that knew him and would like to write in his guestbook.
