Jeri, you know how I felt about He’s and that I wish he was still physically here but his energy, his spirit, and his sometimes unbareble consistentcy for others to be great still all around us. We made a pact with each other and it was to make sure that we help each other’s family out when and where we could. I know I can’t do much other than just here for you but remember the “first ones always free!” (as he would jokingly say to me).
