    I sure wish we could of made it down to the lock and damn site just one more time! We sure burned up a lot of firewood and had many good laughs. I remember when we couldn’t wait to talk to old Stanford the lock operator! Cause that old guy could sure keep us laughing trading stories. I’ll never forget some of talks we had , I sure regret not coming to see U the last time u invited me over. It always seems like there is more time than what we are given. I’ll truly miss you Brother T , and I know lots of others feel the same way. U were one of kind a true friend. Thank u for letting me hangout with u! Knowing u was a blessing, RIP my friend. God Bless….
