  4. Jimmy, you left way too early.
    I remember like it was yesterday all of us sitting around the table, playing shmear, and everyone getting in for the “show down”. We spent many a night playing cards, joking around, and just having fun, and getting the work done.
    All my best, to your family, from my family!
