just a line about a buddy that I went to high school with and the lost of this good guy. Over the years I have always said he missed his calling by being killed in the war. He used to make us some great war games to play at our desk in school and had he lived would have been very rich by now doing computer games. true we did fell every thing that year, but it was a great time in my life and I think of him often.
