Dear Birdie, Danny & Cindy and family...we are such long time friends. There were so many great times in the past shared with our famlies. Rich and our father had some great stories to share when they were together from years past. I'll never forgot the time I bought the little "Honda 55" motorcycle from Rich when he had it out at the family farm in East End...I was 10yrs old and he made me a good deal. He was a very special man....Hugs & Prayers to all.
