Walter,, The last time we spoke was at my fathers wake at Rogers just a few months age and we said the same thing we always said " Dude,, We gutta hang out soon and catch up !!" In this hectic world we never seem to have enough time to spend with the ones that have meant the most to us, and now I finally get to hang out with you but now only to say goodbye. May you rest in heavenly peace my friend.
