I met Krip 34 years ago in the Service and we have been friends ever since. We enjoyed going to the shooting range and hanging out together. We had our share of good and not so good times but we always remained friends through it all. I have been around him so much his son Eric calls me Uncle Pat and I consider him and nephew too. RIP Harold I'll never forget you as long as I live. You were a good friend to me and i thank you for that. Tango Tango out....Patrick Stanley
