Miss you big guy. Loved talking with you, arguing and laughing. Your friendship made the last couple of years more than bearable. Do you remember the time we walked to Captain Scott's and had all that seafood? The wait in line was worth it. I remember the nurse that had your eye. You certainly weren't waiting for an invitation. We traded stories about our lives and you gave me great insight. Love you buddy. Rest easy.

To my children, Melissa, Jessica & Richard Thinking of you and wishing you peace as you remember your dad. Remember not only his passing, but his life. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
