My Figgy! Oh what a wonderful friend. I am going to miss you so much! Rest easy brother. I will see you again someday. Shooting pool will never be the same. I am so BLESSED to have had moments with you. Canadian Mist. I didn't forget. Orange soda, Brown and serve sausages. The steak from the dinner. I would bring you them.

Figgy, my buddy! I already miss you so much. I miss coming to check on you everyday and chatting for a bit. I miss your smile when I’d ask you if you wanted a Big Mac and an orange soda! I have lots of memories with you. You saved my mom from getting severely hurt! She always called you her angel. I remember having happy hour at the Eagles Nest many years ago and Marvin Gaye would come on the jukebox and you’d sing into your beer bottle and dance with all the ladies. You were a true ladies man!! I’m sad that you are gone but I’m so glad your not in pain any longer.
The last day we spoke, you were sleeping and you woke up and said call my mom, 410-692-xxxx (can’t remember the last 4 numbers) but I’m assuming it was your moms number. You said “call my mom, tell her I’m coming”. God and Larry as my witness that happened. 2 days later you were gone. I know your pain free and with your beloved mom now.
I love you my friend, my figgy!!
