Lord we had some great times growing up, you taught me to drive that bad boy roadrunner back in 69, you brought the love of my life to me I still have all the letters you sent me while in Viet Nam. We did not see each other much but I knew you where just around the corner.You were a major part of my life I will always love you and I know if there is a Roadrunner in heaven you are banging gears like they have never seen before you were the best.
