    Rest in peace my brother Moose. I respected you more than many because of a small act you did many years ago to a newbie in the Moose Legion. You were one of the best. Our blessed Moose and our world has lost a great gentleman, kind to all he met.

    I can’t find the words to say how sorry I am. He was so much more to me than just a good friend. He was just like a brother to me. His family is just like my family also. Watched you kids grow up and now you guys all have kids of your own. I know how proud of those grandkids he was. Being a Pawpaw meant the world to him. There will always be a special place in my heart for him.
