So many great memories, great times, Great laughs over so many years! He was a good friend. He always brought a smile to my face. Don't tell anyone, especially Denny Mollard but Buzz did a small adjustment to a crown, Denny had put in that was just a little to high!! I remember a "movie night" and having to stop when the boys came home... I will ask him about the 8 track player when we meet again!! So many memories.... God Bless Buddy!! You will be missed.
