    Bumpy it was a pleasure being a brother in Christ. Our Tuesday bible study will miss you greatly. I have fond memories of you taunting bears fans while we watched Greenbay Packers at Nemos. You were always so positive even during your last year in life. I know you are rejoicing in heaven with tour wife and your family. Until we meet again Go Pack Go!!!!
