My sincere condolences to Shawn and Colleen. I know it’s going to be hard to go on without him, but he would want you to remember all the good times you shared with him. I’ll never forget him gettting the custom agents in Niagra Falls in a panty twist and almost having my car torn apart for drugs. He was so happy with himself cause my car was jammed with camping supplies. Or when we went to see Denny and camped outside Washington, D.C. and going to the Archives building almost gettting put in jail because he wanted to see the log book that he signed going to Vietnam Nam. Two guards with hands on their guns grilled us for 3 hrs. In the basement. On that trip he also pulled out at the Vietnam Nam wall before the tow truck driver could tow my car. When we took his truck, nothing happened. He will always hold a special part of my heart. I will really miss him. Prayers to you both.
