I love hearing stories from the years before we came along. Sounds like my dad was quite the wild guy and speed was engrained in his blood. Thank you.

My dad cares so much about his friends. Would be the first to swing by just to check and see how you were doing. He spoke about you and your brother all the time. Thank you for your kind words.
