David and Paul and family, I am just seeing this and very sorry. I know he is in Heaven with God and Ms. Betty and enjoying his reunion. I have so many wonderful memories of our carpool days to Geico. He was so much fun to be around and shared all his wonderful war & Shrine stories. He sure loved you all and was very proud of alll of you. Sending love and hugs to you all. Sheila Stokes
