I don't remember the first time we meet but know it was 1974 . Because of your crazy brother Mac our paths crossed. I always remember your great smile, calm way and dedication to family. Those days were a crazy off the wall time but whenever we were together I could see by your special way how life could be even for a crazy guy like me. As time passed and having fun all the time wasn't as much fun anymore you began to rub off on me , well part of it was I liked looking at Mary better then you.! Eventually,I figured if you could do it I could. This took Mac a bit longer . The dedication to family the right woman and partner in life, has made all the difference in my life and I thank you for that. I know I should have told you personally this long ago , no regrets because you know now ,your family knows and Mac knows .
See you out there and thanks so much.
