Our youth was a crazy time where anything went.
Me, you and Red played the 3 Amigos on more than one occasion....lol....good times fore sure.....
At some point we both stopped to settle down and try and do the right thing.
Man...sure was easier doin the other stuff...lol.
I was always impressed with your dedication to your family. A strong man indeed. 
You were not a quitter and didn't really complain much about things.
You taught me valuable auto mechanics skills at a young age.
Skills I use to this day.
I'm only sorry we didn't make time for each other as we grew older.
Old friends are worth their weight in gold!
