One of the most sweetest gentleman I ever knew. I will miss him. So glad that not too long ago He and I shared a conversation and a hug at the Handy Mart , he was on a country ride with His Son, and flagged me down. What a joy it was to see HIm. Even tho He was not in the best health then He had a way of making one feel special. He was the ONE who was really special. My love and condolences to His family.
