    I have fond memories (and funny ones too) of having out with Davey judy and Dwanedia. He was a pretty big influence for me at one point, sat me down and had a long talk with me about where I wanted to go in life and what was I running from. He didn't talk much, but I heard him.

    The world has lost another good man. Always friendly and ready to have a laugh. As I know many other will say the same, I am shocked and saddened to learn that another life-long friend has departed. As the years fly by, surviving our family and friends is one of life's hardships that doesn't not become easier with increasing age. You will be missed, my friend. Our prayers are with your family.
