    What a great fellow, he will be missed.
    We always enjoyed our conversations over the fence when he was helping his Mom out at the lake property. Glad we got to catch up a few weeks ago.
    Let’s all hope he is at the big fishing hole in the heavens reeling in one big catch after another!
    Our deepest sympathy to the entire family, such a terrible loss.
