Dang Joey, slow down. I said that in my head as he blew us away running a couple of miles every other day. Now I say, Dang Joey, its been 26 years and now I'm retired. He was my roommate at the Utah P.O.S.T. Academy in the spring of 1992. He moved out to be with his wife in a new house if I remember correctly, that left me with a room to myself. I always appreciated his kindness. He had a great smile. I had my fair share of close calls and thanked him from time to time when I would hear a voice, "don't go in there" or "don't go that way". So thanks Joey... I will see you again brother.
