Although I've only know you for a few short years, I value and loved the time we spent talking about the past, the laughs we had, the friendly jibs we bestowed upon one another. You were a man of wisdom, rich in knowledge, a wealth of history. You will be missed, but never will you be forgotten. I know that you are in a far better place, where you no longer have pain & suffering, not having to deal with the everyday trials and tribulations, but will be able to enjoy the peace, comfort and tranquility of the spiritual life.
