The loss of this great, joyful, hard-working, hard-loving man is profound.

It is the hope of those of us in his physical and spiritual family that we can hold on to some of the joy that we found with him by sharing our stories of times with him.

There is a form to fill out and share your story below. Include photos, videos (or YouTube links). (If you include a photo, please add a note in your post that you are uploading a photo and a brief description of the photo, so that we can link the correct photo with your post! thanks)

So, please. Stay for a while and share your memories of one of the greatest guys you ever met.
