Hey Brother, Whaddup Buttercup?! recently I realized why I say that so often. My earliest memories are of Wallace farm. and you showing me how a buttercup, or dandelion could turn your chin yellow*. And thank you for saving me from that Goat! I liked the way you pushed the swing way better than that thing did. I miss you. I think of you every time I pick up my guitars. my Grandson wants to be a "saver" like you. and Justin most certainly has your heart and spirit. and he looks so much like you. I know my first, first responder was you. Thank you for watching out for us.
I know your watch never ends. I miss you! K
