    Heaven gained a remarkable and humble man and one outstanding barber. I will and have always missed our barber shop chats especially those about the Navy. Please allow Denise and I join the chorus and pass our deepest condolences on your loss of a beloved husband, father, friend and one of the very best and great American I have ever had the privilege and honor to know.
