great times together, after marrage we all drifted away. I think back
on those days often and the good times we had, I will miss him.

used to be at his father’s gas station many, many years ago when the
station was located at the corner if Idlewild and Indpendence. He will

We wanted to send our condolescences to your family. My daughter met
your son/brother last Wednesday evening by his pond. She is a junior in
high school and was taking pictures for a photo class and he walked up
to talk with her. He allowed her to take pictures and told her all
about the pond and the land around it. We wanted to send him a picture
later to say thank you. We will now say thank you to your family for
such a nice gesture by your son/brother.
