....was just sitting here reading over these memories, it was actually the summer of '65 that 'ol Peanut and I met! There was a large group gathered up at Hitch Park , he and I just hit it off and that was the beginning of a lifelong friendship ... I was riding my old Honda 305 Super Hawk and he was driving his Uncle Chris' 1962 Olds Starfire ... Lord knows that boy loved that car ......

Peanut and I were both born in Chicago in 1950 but we didn't meet until 1967 in Pooler , Georgia. We dated all summer long then at the end of the summer, I had to go back to Illinois to go back to school and Peanut went in the Marines. I wrote to him for a long time. We remained friends off and on over the years. Still love you Sonny. Always will.

I really don't know where to start here. Peanut was a very good friend to me for many years. Over 40 years as a matter of fact. We had a lot of crazy, good , happy and sad times together. He was a man of his word and a good man all around. He was very intelligent . He had a tough life growing up. He never expected anything he didn't deserve. He served his country with honor and courage in the Vietnam war. He took me under his wing when I was 18 years old. I have a lot of respect and love for my friend. Rest in peace, my friend.

Gary, we lost a good one ... This 'ol world will never be quite the same, he'll surely going to be missed by all who have had the pleasure to have known him. I'll always remember the first thing he said when I walked into his room at the hospital after he finally woke up from surgery ... "Dan Frawley, we've been through a lot together" ... and that we certainly have. Since meeting as kids in the summer of '66, we shook it pretty good .... tons of good times and great memories, some not suitable for print! Not really, we never hurt a soul, but we really did enjoy life ....
I'm gonna' miss ya' pal .... rest easy .....
