We had the pleasure of visiting him and being in his company a few times . He was a good man .He took us for a drive one day on some back roads near him , through some cornfield country , talking about his younger days. He was interesting to listen to. We met him at the Night & Day diner a few times for a meal. Time and distance kept us apart. We wish we got to see him more , to know him better . He was a good man . Rest in peace friend . Pray for us . ---- Domenic & Donna Peluso
