    I so sorry for your loss. Don, ” Scooter ” as we called him, was always so sweet & genu. He came to our house all the time way back. He always showed up when my mom cooked chili, he’d fix himself a bowl, grab a FORK and enjoy every bite. He was a great guy, and I caas honored to call him ” my friend ” !! RIP Scooter and forever fly high…. ‚̧
