    Sure going to miss you buddy, I will never forget the day I came over to visit on the motorcycle and I had the smallest of scratch on the saddle bag that you noticed and said, I can take care of that for you. He disappeared in the house for five minutes or so then came out with like 4 different waxes and towels and worked the scratch out. Who does that?!?! Scott, thats who!!! I will never forget your saying bud, “Knees in the breeze”. Then we usually had one heck of a good ride. It was a pleasure knowing you bud and we will meet again someday I pray.
