We were in our Prime... Professionals, Happy, Fun Loving. On the DEA Softball team in Atlanta you batted first and I second. I remembered we always discussed strategy and bet who would get a hit that inning. Having beers afterwards at Good Ole Days on Roswell Rd.

It was a shock that morning I heard and was so sad. I traveled from Atlanta to Schenectady to play in your first memorial golf tourney..I placed second which was so fitting.

Take Care my buddy.
