Can’t help but feel a part of me is missing. What a terrible loss for those of us left behind. Too many memories to mention. The best of them were just sitting and talking. I will miss those conversations. I can remember him always taking time for me and having so much patience with me when I was a kid. He always made me laugh. What a gift, such good memories.

I had the pleasure of visiting him with my wife, Jackie Kallay Rowe. We talked, we laughed, drank coffee that he insisted on making. Would have liked to have known him better. My deepest sympathy to the whole family.
