Thank you for making my dreams come true. I miss you and love you, and unfortunately I never got to say good-bye. I will remember the good times because that's all there were. We were together every day since the latter part of 06. I wish it could have been longer. Traveling with you was a delightful experience. You were so well informed about the history of the countries we visited and were so friendly with strangers and helpful.
The devotion you had for your family was such a wonderful thing to see. You were also dedicated to your friends and the Elks, and quite a teacher, and such an honest and kind man, You gave of yourself to all.
Goodbye my gentle giant. I am sure you will be looking over all of us.
