Dear Compadre, I always enjoyed being around at work. We always made even the boring times a little more endurable. We were a lot alike in so many ways and I learned a lot from you. You will be sorely missed. I still had more to learn from you, now I will have to trust in your guidance from the other side. Thanks Brother of Mine.
