I am saddened to see my old friend and classmate has passed on. There was not a nicer guy in our class, or school. Somewhat of a jokester, but always in good will and someone you could always trust to have your back if needed. Brother Stan was the same way and may both of them be at peace in the Lord's Kingdom. They're probably swapping tales of their Air Force duty while in England as I type. Brothers in arms back together again. May the Lord keep them close.
