    We will miss you Rainman more than most will know. You was knowledgeable person I knew of history of WWII. You was also the best spray painter I ever worked with. As I told you many times it was enjoyable watching you work. You were talented. I will miss our talks and your quirky sense of humor. I sincerely miss you. I love you man.
