29 years and still, we remember !!! Merry Christmas Darryn. I still miss you and think of you often. Most of the old crew is retired now and have moved away. I'm very grateful and thankful for the good memories we shared. I hope you're continuing to rest in eternal peace and Paradise with our Lord. Love you brother.
