I remember when you met my future husband right after we became engaged.  After some polite conversation and getting to know each other, you told him what would happen to him if you ever heard that he had mistreated me.  I was surprised at that but I assumed that you wanted him, since he was not a hometown boy, to know that people in Covington and Porterdale didn't take that sort of stuff lightly.  


You were funny and always very kind to me and also a very good on the football field.


Rest in peace my friend.
