Hi buddy! I just want to say that I am glad that we had a chance to be together before you to be with our Heavenly Father. Carol and I will miss the times we spent together, calling bingo on the buses heading for the casino. And all the time we spent looking for each other at the casinos. Carol and I will miss yours and Vicky's company. We really enjoyed our time we spent with you. You gave me good advice when I really needed someone to talk to. God speed my good friend. Love, Carol & Rolo Schaubhut (Terrytown,LA)
