    My heart was saddened by learning of your passing today old friend. Old memories come back as we worked and socialized together. As friends for 40 years we always had a hello and a handshake for each other. Truly a unique friend who I am so thankful I had the opportunity to know. Rip old friend. Until we meet again.
