I will miss my friend. He was my hero and I told him so. We met in 1985 at Tampa Chamber. When I was thinking of running for Tax Collector he said I'll support you. When he was running for Governor and came to Dade City and said so many nice things about me I reminded him he was running for Governor not me. I still have his bumper sticker on my truck. This is a terrible loss for our State and Community and for me. May his gifts to us never be forgotten. To Alex and the kids this comes at a difficult time of the year but he was where he wanted to be. I'm in Utah but my heart and thoughts are with you. May God bless you and give you peace.
