I will certainly miss our telephone visits, talking and laughing together
I will always remember the fun at the fence; the horrible hot bloody mary I gave you, we laughed till we cried. i mostly thank you for the tanner conversations after a hard day work, it was always fun playing wahoo with you and others. I will always think of you as a great and dearing friend; until we meet again;rest well my friend.
