Gail and I along with Dale Dean and David Spenner were great friends in high school. He was the greatest friend a guy could ever wish for. My heart is sad and pained to hear of their loss. I would be there to share your loss if it was possible. Words cannot express my true feelings. God bless all of his family !!!
