From the first day that we met with me being the new neighbor he treated me like an old friend. Since that day we shared many conversations and even more jokes with each other that I will appreciate even more now.
He was truly a one of a kind person that I feel better for having had him as a friend. He will be truly missed...
My thoughts and prayers will be with his whole family..
