    I'm sorry to hear about Yogi. He and I worked together at Guilford East many years ago. We spent a lot of time working together and I learned a lot about computers from him. It was an honor to know him. He was one-of-a-kind.

    Yogi was a ray of sunshine, and I will forever remember his smile and laughter. He brought out the best in people. Nothing was more important to him than his family and he loved them dearly. Yogi was a wonderful friend for many years. My children and grandchildren thought of him as an uncle. He is at peace now. God Bless Kim, Michael, and the rest of his precious family. He is gone, but will forever be in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
