I'm so sorry for your loss. My Dad (Howard "Joe" Thackeray) was the baseball coach that gave him the nick-name Moose.
Glen Jones told me about your loss we sure miss the old times. God be with you and your family.

A little tribute to my little brother. I do not remember this world without you it. Oh what a childhood we had, the fighting and helping each other out. Going to your baseball games when you turned into Moose. You and Glen being crazy boys. Football at Hillcrest, fishing for hours with Ray. You were the biggest tease with the most creative way of swearing. You were always fixing everything. You were a great guy and I loved you. See you in the afterlife. Cindy
