Thank you for all you did for me in life. From the first job you got me to the 2 muscle cars you sold me. You took as great a care of those cars as you did with me and the entire family. My sincerest condolences to your wife and children. The Yankees win the World Series every year in heaven with you up there.
Your brother Steve
