    Rest in peace hockey buddy. Thanks to you and your season tickets we enjoyed many Tampa Bay Lightning games over the years. You explained the game and helped me thoroughly understand and appreciate it. I'll remember our Walmart conversations where we discussed and solved the world's problems. My prayers for the repose of your soul and the solace of the family you leave behind. Until we meet again. LET'S GO BOLTS!!
