It's been more than a few years since our paths crossed, Lee, but there's no way I could have forgotten you after the many years we toiled together working for Goodyear. And you were one of those that made my job easier and more plesant than it otherwise might have been. So your gone now, but rest assured that I'll be looking you up in not too many years now.... So until then....RIP, Lee - RIP.
