  • My heart is heavy on this day. I lost another friend that meant so much to me in my life. We had a lifetime of memories that I will never forget. So many good times fill my mind on a day of such sorrow. To the Puskas family, it was a honor to call him my friend. He loved his Mother very much and she kept her eye on him all the time. My heart breaks for you all. I know Deanna, your heart is broke as well, but let it be known that he loved you very much. More than Starbucks. It is a tragedy what they did to our friend. The kindest,gentle,quiet guy with a big heart. Always there when you ask. Respectful of his guns,women and authority figures. Let that be known to all. He was a giant part of my life and I will miss him forever. There are a few good guys waiting for him in heaven, that I know. He will be in good hands. He has a head full of hair,giant smile and no troubles anymore. My life was made better with him in it. I went through old pictures as the tears fell from my eyes and it made me remember all the great times we had. I will miss you forever. Your friend and brother, Asher
