    Our 3 times a week lunches together on night shift are forever engrained in my memory. You had the driest sense of humor I’ve ever encountered. I have a smile on my face right now thinking of how you’d crack wise with a deadpan look.

    I wish we could’ve hooked up once or twice after we retired, but like a kid, I thought we’d live forever and always have the time.

    I’m glad you’re with the wife again and I hope the big guy let you keep you’r your Hess truck collection!

    Love ya, pal!!
