You were like a brother to me growing up. The many memories I have of you, me, Mark, Fred, and Troy cruising around the streets of Houlton and hanging out, still make me laugh. Now you are on to the next chapter. "Be of good cheer about death, and know of a certainty, that no evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death." --Socrates. Rest in peace brother.
