My condolences to the family and friends.
Swope~
You were ornery, you rattled my already nervous nerves at C.L.E.E.T. and made me smile through it all. You continued to crack me up and rattle me. I never knew what you would say next and that was the fun part of it all. You are missed, loved and will never be forgotten. RIP Swope~
