Harry,

Drove through Ferris twice last week on I-45 while on vacation with the family. I always lament having to take that route. It still stings. On a more positive note, I hung out briefly with Brian in Houston. I was reminded that the last time you and I hung out was with Brian when we all shot skeet at Ft. Sill. I fondly look back on the good times we all had there. You are not forgotten.
