Al and I at a mere age of 7 would see who could make the most money getting draft beer refills for the drunk West central folks during Henry’s block parties While we did attend the same schools, our parents also went to college together so we were pals on the weekends, also. I am heartbroken... we talked about death a lot after we both lost our Dads, whom we adored, so many times over a coors light and several fireball shots. I love you Brother, until we meet again.

Tobitha, I was sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. I had not seen him in a long time, but remember him fondly. I will always remember his love for cars. Many prayers to you and his daughters as you go through this difficult time.
