My sympathies to my childhood buddy and masonic lodge brother Lucky. Sister Sharon and I will miss you greatly. We dearly love you and Judy. I had a good brief visit with Judy after the funeral; needed to spend more time with her. You were in our thoughts. This was my 190th masonic funeral that I felt honored to preform. It was very hard for me. I miss you my friend. Go with God.
