Dean we had fun challenging each other, polar opposites politically, but forever bonded in our military service and professions that chose us after. You were the cool cat with 9 lives, escaping the big C by many years. If only your cat had a few more. Every time a cat comes and sits by one of those trees planted for you, know we were thinking of you and sending along a little prayer. Save a seat for me my friend and work out a new song. We still need to sing a song of hope together. Many prayers for you and your family members.
