Its really hard sometimes to speak past tense about a person you care so much about..... My friend i will always Cherish the time we spent paving these streets all around Atlanta. Going to the World of Asphalt.... we were like kids in the candy store seeing all the new paving equipment coming out. We talked on the phone for hours at a time about old Classic Cars. I will miss you and thanks for being a Great Friend! Love you my brother RIP.
