    There are no words to express how I feel and I don’t do well with showing emotion. Little moments I will always remember, talking to you on the C.B. when I was young… “This is the Agitator” you would say, sitting on the side of the road and watching you march in the parade with your M1 carbine rifle, a beer at the AMVETS in Heuvelton when I was home on leave and you would never take my money, our talks on Ford Street… two grumpy old ***kers letting their guard down just enough to be real. I learned a lot from you and hope I make you proud.

    Hand shake, punch in the arm, and a hug when no one is looking…Skip
