pop pop .. thanks for always sharing a glass of wine and the stories of yester-year with me. I don't think you ever knew how much it meant to me. Put a word in with the big guy that the Yankees win the pennant this year. I'll never forget you

"Leaves of Grass"
I depart as air. I shake my white locks at the runaway sun. I bequeath myself to the dirt, to grow from the grass I love.
If you want me again, look for me under your boot soles.You will hardly know who I am,or what I mean, but I shall be good health to you nevertheless. Missing me one place, search another.
I"ll stop somewhere, waiting for you.
-Walt Whitman
