Great to sit with you again my friend. How the world is changing. Chargers are still in SD for the moment and the Rams are back in LA. I should be back in the OC in Jan and will visit again.

It's almost Christmas...your favorite time of the year. The weather feels like Christmas. I think it's the same temperature in Ohio. I'll see Taline and little Emerson tomorrow. I miss you my friend.

It's been a little while since I've visited sunny CA. You are still in my thoughts. Scottrade is still climbing for Taline and me both. You were so damn smart. Miss you my friend.

Hey old man how you doing up there. It might take a little adjustment for you as I'm sure there's no investment programs. However the RVS system may work in many other ways and I'm looking forward when I get there that you will have figured out all the ropes and short cuts. Connie and I miss you, think of us often as we do you!

You are in my thoughts so much. We miss your great wit, intelligence and subtle sarcasm. Keep them alert up there. Relieved you no longer have pain, but you are so missed.
