    The loveliest of gentlemen. What a sweet guy. A pleasure to enjoy a conversation with.
    Involved with his community. A rare one indeed. My Husband Jim Branch was wondering aloud about you just the other day, missing flying planes with you. So sorry for your loss to the family and especially the ones I know personally–Liz a wonderful woman, Ron my classmate through school, Helen my friend and mother of Brad my son’s classmate and Lindsey my daughter’s classmate.
