    Steve, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I have many fond memories of your mom and dad, the times they used to carry us to baseball games as little leaguers. Playing baseball in the dark under the lights of your dad’s farm house. The fishing we used to do with Terry Ciganek and Larry Clifton. Anyway, those times have long since passed. But, I think is often nice to reflect on memories that make you smile. At least they do for me. My mother has already passed away, but my dad is still living and about to turn 90, so I can relate to some of the feelings you must be experiencing. Would love to see you and your mom, Rook. She was a great mom to you as your dad was a father. I remember them both with many fond memories. Your friend from many years ago.

    1. Thanks Terry Wayne it’s all good and thanks for the post we had some GREAT TIMES when you lived here
