Today I woke up and thoughts of my old friends just flooded my head. I needed to come here and express how much I miss my old Kerhonkson knights that I grew up with and hold so many great memories about the old days. Ray you are one of those friends that I will never forget. I hope the family is getting along O.K. since you left us. Miss you friend.
