Rest easy, way up above those clouds wild man! I always enjoyed hearing you ask Mike if that's Big-Tee in the house, from your room, when I would stop by. Then I would step in and listen to your latest joke and more of your crazy stories for a little bit. I've known you, your children and other members of the family for a good long time and you were a good man who will be missed by many. To the family, sorry to hear the news. Please let me know if I can help in any way. Thinking of all of you today. Take care, -Big Tee
