Sir, You were prime culturally, emotionally & intellectually at ALL stages of life. We counseled life's crises, encouraged unique strategies & embraced destinations during our journeys. From the abyss of darkness to the euphoria of living we shared an abundance in "LIFE". Absent but always PRESENT, Tooley Out!
