I appreciate that… Thanks.
I love these pictures Koji. I know you miss Old Man Jack. And you honor him with your memories and affection.
I think of him often, Chatter Master. Quite often.
I know you do Koji. And how that must make him feel. 🙂
You know I think of your father and Jack quite often, just as I hear you mention Smitty’s name in your comments to me. We show our gratitude to them by keeping the memories alive. Thank you, Koji.
You are waaay in front in keeping their memories alive, gpcox. Way ahead. 😉
