I do not know where to start. He was a great friend. He was always there when we needed him. We rode motorcycle. We went camping and fishing. You could see see him in shorts with his cowboy boots. We never forgot that sight. We just shared just sitting around doing nothing. Just being good friends was enough for him. I am sorry I can't attend funeral. But I want the family to know I will be there in spirit. God has a new angel. My prayers go out to the family. Susan Hack
