I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I have good memories of him in the late 70's when he and your family kept me from completely losing my mind... Dallas Cowboys, pizza (NO ANCHOVIES THIS TIME, PLEASE !.. LOL ) and pool time are just some that come to mind...

Prayers for all of you guys. Love you, Jeff
