    Hi Old Buddy,

    I already miss you. You, Dale, and I were always good buddies. My old regret was not seeing and visiting you more. We sort of lost contact over the years but always know that I was a good and faithful friend and always had your back.

    Rest in Peace, Brother Coal Miner and Brother US Military Veteran
