    To my namesake:
    The friendship started at good old Waldenwoods camping with our families. You were a great friend and we had so much fun on 4th of Julys, camping, casino trips, NASCAR races, birthday parties for the kids and getting to know each other’s families. I will miss you so so much and our 2-3 hour telephone catch up conversations. Fly high my angel.

    Connie 2
