It has been quite a long time, I use to be your neighbor when I was 9. We would come over to play on the trampoline/ treehouse/zipline you had for Danny. Danny would come over and play in our pool. Your wife Judy was the sweetest person ever and I remember your dog Pepper who was such a good girl. Your memory just popped up in my head but thank you for the core memories you and your family have given me and my family. Bless your family.
