Wow..TJ..we go back over 50 yrs! I can' believe what I was reading in the paper this morning. ***Sigh*** I remember when you used to come down my street to go visit Lenny in your 66/67 (?) GTO or what is a Chevy Chevelle SS? Black... nice mags... What a car! You'd stop and let me hop in and take me for a ride in it... What fun I used to have with you!..just talking and laughing You were such a great guy to me..when most guys weren't at that time in my life! I will never forget you for that TJ and we remained friends for a long time after that. Unfortunately, we lost track of each other and I often thought about you and wondered about how your life was going. I was glad to see that you were still with Carrie after all these years! She is a lucky woman! You're a great guy T... My heart was so broken this morning. I read the news today.. Oh boy .. **sigh**... My heart goes out to you Carrie and family.... with deepest sympathies and a broken heart....

Remember the good times camping at Waketa Camp Ground, Hampton NH and going to Hampton Beach. Playing KENO, darts, having a few beers and lots of laughs, and inviting me to Thanksgiving dinner. One of the true good guys. Rest in peace my friend, gone to soon.
