“Sally, I'm really sorry for your loss. Darwyn, Goody, Donnie, Jake and myself had a lot of fun together. Whether it was bowling, playing hoops, golfing, or fishing, I have a lot of memories. Pabst Blue Ribbon could usually be found as well. I'm really glad I got to see to see "Witt" a few years ago.”
