Relaxing in the evening. Swimming at sunset, sitting in the jaquzi and watching the Jets fly over. We also seen beautiful birds by the pool. Buying your old home, having things in common, like decorating the bathroom with bath tubs. Sitting on your porch rocker visiting.

Love you my friend and will miss you.
