You will never be forgotten, you were like a father to me always there when I neeeded anything. Your presence will live on in the many things you've done, and whenever I walk into the bar I'll never forget how you had Connie and I as your helpers. May you REST in PEACE and know you were truly loved by so many.I will miss you but NEVER forget you. I'm so lucky you were a part of my life.
Love Barb
