Looking back, I have so many great memories of you during those days (before cell phones became glued to everyone’s hand) Ha ha. You could turn any old boring day into an amazing day with your flare for adventure and great sense of humor. Someone else posted that you were a good soul. So true! You were one of a kind and you will be missed dearly.
