As 13 year old boys I remember we would jump the fence at the drive in theater and set up front on a bench to watch a movie. We talked a lot about church and God. Played ball, shot hoops and just enjoyed being young. Gary I have many memories of the things we did, all good, Your spirit will live on as you grew into a truly good man.
