    David I was shocked to hear of your passing and although we didn’t run into each other as often as when I used to work on your truck, your big broad smile and hearty laugh always did my heart good and made me happy to see you and it was good just knowing you were around. I’ll keep your mom and Rose in my prayers. R.I.P. my friend and I’m looking forward to seeing that big smile and hearing that deep laugh again when we meet again over there!
