I first met The Governor during the mid 80s at the Holiday Inn Restaurant in Ft. Pierce where he liked to have lunch. I was with Southern Bell then, and we had a great time talking politics, etc. What a great guy and man's man! In the years, I worked with Claudia through her imvolvement in many organizations, and always enjoyed keeping up to date on his doings. A few years ago, while I worked at New England Tech/Lincoln College, he and Erika attended a reception at Cafe Protege. What an honor to spend time with him again. He was a fine man, that did good things for the citizens and state of Florida. I feel fortunate to have known him!
