As I am able to sit here I think of you as a brother and friend, I think of the times before you left and took me in your 56 M.G. to the drive-in and set and talked of the times to come. I never thought that you would not be here today and talk of kids and grandchildren that are growing every day. I sure do miss you and this world sure missed a great guy and all you had to give. You are in my thoughts every day and it sure hasn't changed with the days gone by. I look forward to seeing you again and all are in my thoughts and prayers.

From his brother.
