"I promise no tomorrow but today will always last

And since each day's the same here there's no longing for the past.

So when tomorrow starts without me don't think we're far apart.

For every time you think of me I am right here in your heart."

He was full of life and loved with all his heart. He always wanted to get back to work no matter how his body felt. He often talked about how strong his mind was, but his body didn't match up. Being age 70. He loved a cold Busch and sitting outside for hours.  Just to hang out with friends and family. He enjoyed talking and telling you stories. He often talked about Chico's tacos, and how good of a cook he was.
