    Hey buddy, I’m just finding this now however I knew that you went on your way earlier this summer. Actually I was at Mass General when I got the call about your passing from the center. I have one of them Pacemakers now to help my heart beat stronger. We spent much time together after you suffered that stroke, you were the strongest man during the most difficult time one could imagine. I regret that I was unable to visit with you at the ctr when the covid hit, I remember coming by your window there to say hi. I know we will meet again someday in God’s great garden above. See you then my friend. Peace to your family.
