    Hey Buddy,
    Well, it's been almost 50 years since you've been gone, but you are still remembered by me and all your friends from Roseville High in Michigan. I'm attaching a picture of your name on the at Freedom Hill Park in Sterling Hgts.
    I will always remember you Brother for the fine individual you were. There is a line from a poem that say's "The dead will live on in the living" and you do. You live on in my heart and my mind.
    Love you Brother
