R.I.P. you were such a sweet man. Your wife and you had been coming in Goodwill for years and we would always talk. After Virginia passed you would still come in just not as much, but we still talked. And I would ask you about your breakfast and coffee at either McDonald's's or Hardees. I know you and Virginia and now up here smiling and looking down on everyone here. I will miss our conversations. R.I.P
