This was a man who was truly a genuine person,a person that what you seen is what you get .i met him about 6 years ago and slowly over the years had become good friends .he was always glad to see me when i went by for a visit ,as i was to see him.there was just something about the man that you could not help but bond with him if you spent any length of time with him.his old stories , the way he loved his property and pointing at all the trees in his yard and remembering planting everyone of them.he was just a great guy and was one of the boys..............it's impossible to replace a man like him,he can only be missed by the people that were close to him.he will always have a special place in my heart and i will miss him.
love your good friend
