John and I grew up as neighbors back in the "go outside and play" days and boy did we ever have fun. I have nothing but great memories of the times spent with my best friend growing up in the 50's and 60's. Until we meet again, keep swinging for the fences. You're missed, JBK. Condolences to his wonderful family.
