    I feel like I have known this man for a lifetime and yet it will take a lifetime to express all that I feel.He was ornery, loved to argue and loved to stir up a pot of trouble and then sit back, watch and laugh at the outcome. In so many ways he was unique, our friendship, the love for each other and the love of his wife and my friend Andrea and her children is just some of the things we shared. In many aspects I looked to him as a second parent as I did his wife. I will greatly miss the time I squeezed out of my busy life to visit, because although they were rare and few and far between they were that much more special.
