I feel I’ve lost a part of myself. A teacher, co-worker, friend. All those trips to Detroit: the Kingsley, Wheat & Rye, Rental cars to Chrysler, good times and bad, he always had a positive attitude and another plan. Never “majored in the minors.”
He will be missed and remembered.
We’ll meet again old friend.
