You are going to need to dive way back in your memory. I was with you when you first began dating your wife. We worked the Legislature together and were lucky enough to save a life while partnering on CPR in the Speaker’s Office. Then we were assigned together to the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition in New Orleans for several months when I started dating my wife.
We were together for a number of milestones for both of our lives even though we lived and were assigned half a state away. I still remember your jovial attitude, your smile, and your continued excitement when we participated in some new assignment.
All our children are adults now. I’ve been retired for many years, but I still think of you, my brother, quite often. Rest well and we will meet again to renew our friendship with a handshake and a hug for all orders we followed and all the years we missed.
