There is a lifetime of memories that I will keep in my heart until we meet again.
Fishing on the St Lawrence, Cameron's Point trailer fun, drinking in the States, playing pool in Dundee, 4th of July parties, seeing puppies born at your house, late night phone calls to Cecil & Anne, card games, bon fires that Chad had to put out before bed, shooting Johnnie's pellet gun, riding your lawnmower down the street and putting up the flags on your neighbors mailboxes.
You were always fun to be around and I will miss you more than you could ever know.
Rest easy Ace!
Love, Joey
