Gman may be gone but this ornery guy will never be forgotten. We had fun bickering back and forth with each other, calling each other some nice so very nice names and just kinda enjoying the fact that we could do that and not hurt each others feelings.....I will miss that.....The last several years have been hard on you and Deb with your serious health issues but you fought a difficult fight and you had a very strong lady by your side helping you fight...That fight is now finished, may you now RIP with no more pain or discomfort of any kind....Thank you for your service to our country.
