Stunned when I heard the news Hawkeye. Though we lost touch with each other I will never forget the good times we had riding through Montrose in your brown Chevy truck or my Cuda, visiting you at the gas station or going with you delivering parts. The laughs amd good times seemed endless and will stay with me forever. To Barb and your family my deepest and sincerest prayers for healing. Until we meet again my old friend, may you rest in peace. Love ya. J.D.
