I meant to appropriately post this on 3-17-17. I see my mom posted a nice story. I just wanted to say I will never forget you and wish constantly especially when this time of year comes up that this never happened!!!! St. Patrick's Day has never been a happy day for me since 1975. 42 years later and I still have my vivid cherished memories and pictures of you from when I was a young boy going on 9 years old. Losing you and grandpa Pine way to young took valuable male figures from my life too early. As my mom said you will never be forgotten and always in our hearts!
