  1. Oh no! I am so very sorry to hear this. He was always so kind, funny, and supportive when I worked in Hazelwood. I moved from Chicago because I was getting married and relocating. He was such a great support and an awesome man. So very very sorry for your loss. Sending love, prayers, and hugs to everyone.

  2. Im heartbroken. Thank you for so many wonderful memories. Meeting you and Linda at The Park Royal soon became out annual trip, and we always looked forward to finding you on the beach reading, in your usual spot. Linda ( with a Y) lol, would come down later in the morning, spoiling you as always with all the bacon you desired but, only bc you were on holidays and it was a treat. We looked forward to going to Lorenzillo’s with you two every year and it was such a treat. Sitting in our favourite spot along the rail and waiting to feed Lorenzo. All the dinner’s at Eduardo’s where we were spoiled with “special- off the menu treats” bc they adored you both. Cheers to all those wonderful times. RIP Handsome. Love you always
