With great respect and tremendous admiration, I enjoyed all the years we competed together. From Ft. Pierce, Ocala, Hartford you have shown the true epitomy of what this great sport stands for. I made sure I had my picture taken with you this past season at Ocala because I knew your retirement was coming soon. It has been 14 years since I retired after 26 years but your 31 years needs to go down in the record books with the likes of Erdoza. You always welcomed me and treated me with the same respect and camaraderie that only us professionals can respect of one another. Thank you for all the great years. God bless you and your family.
