It's been a journey well worth having by knowing you in my early years. Catching the school bus at Binkley's Grocery on Fox Ridge, making our own entertaining devices like stilts to walk across Little Walnut Creek, hoop and wheel races, are only the tip of the iceberg.
Going through adolescence and wondering where our lives would
would eventually end. I admired your artistic ability when we were
freshmen at good ole GHS. Most of all, I cherished our friendship.
Your life was well lived.
