I will always remember your kindness, thoughtfulness, and the wonderful recommendation of the London Fog drink that I will drink in your honor on Christmas. I will never forget you traveling over an hour when you only knew me for a few months and came to my father's wake. You will be sorely missed. Travel well my friend.
