    I was so sad to hear this news. He was such a good man and a very good friend that I had the pleasure of growing up with. We had a lot of fun in and out of school and over the recent years. He will be missed by many including myself and my two children, Josh and Sarah, who also adored him. My condolences to the family and friends of this great man. Warmly, Debby
