My childhood friend has passed into the hands of God. We met in fourth grade at Watson School where we became lifelong friends. I loved watching him play the boogy woogy songs. I will surely miss him at our class reunions. My heart goes out to Carolyn, Marty, and the affected families and friends. Now go with our God into his loving arms. May God Bless the family during these difficult days ahead.
