Larry it was always you and me the best of friends. Why did we not get together the last years when we needed each other. I forgive you for scaring the **** out of me on your boat I came out with a big bruise all down my leg. And was out of work for a week. And the next time we went camping we fussed over who could make the best gravy. You came out on top again. You sure was a good gravy maker. I love you Larry
