Today I was sharing with a friend stories about you. When we both work at u.s. customs district director's office downtown san diego back in 1977. Out of the blue you would come up with crazy things to do. You had a unique knack for seeing things differently and egragiously talked me into joining you. Today my face hurts laughing while thinking of you. I missed so you much. Your mom and I were standing there on the side of hwy 15 the day after heart broken trying to figure out how in the hell this happen and to you of all people. Thinking of you gives me a moment of joy and sadness. Wishing you were here still with us.
