I am thinking about you today....and reminiscing about how far back our friendship the Braves Stadium where you always warmly welcomed my 7 year old with, "Hey Buddy!" He is 32 years old now. Thank you for that.

I'm saddened by your loss, and am praying for comfort and strength as you step forward.

With Love, Phil, Kevin, Donovan, Ryan, and the Guys at Taylors School Bus Shop
