I am so saddened to learn of your passing. It seems like only yesterday you and I were kids riding bikes and building forts as kids. You, Cathy, and I were like three amigos running through the woods around Concord, taking weekend rides with Mama and your Daddy, and putting pennies on the tracks behind the house. I even remember a few of the photos posted by your family. You will always hold a precious place of my childhood. So long Buddy,, and give Mama a hug in Heaven.
