Summer school roommates at the U.  Pizza at midnight.  Rockin' the dorm courtyard. . . even the black folks thought we were nuts.  We were.  Too much beer.  Playin' hearts too much especially you; remember Chuck? "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".  Tennis-- you taught me.  That T2000 sucked.  What did you say into your pillow?!  Thanks for keeping me sane that summer.  Running off with the blonde in the rain, I should have left her with you. Still feel guilty.  Wish we had stayed in contact more.  . . .  Donna.

Glad you met Dor.

Frank.        Sorry, I never called you Skip.

I will miss you, buddy.  See you on the other side.

It has taken some time for me to reflect and collect my thoughts.

My closest friend from third grade at Sherman School through college and beyond. Best man at my wedding. Confidant and buddy through the fun times of childhood, youth, and the never-to-be forgotten teen years. Alternating driving when out cruising. Loyalty and trust never broken. 

Skip, thanks for your friendship, trust, and crazy sense of humor. You brought me out of "the pits" so many times. You made a great difference. As I am sure there will be a Silverfross in heaven, order for me a tenderloin, fries, and a large root beer. Don't forget the extra ketchup.
