I am very sorry for your loss. I really got to know him while I was working in the kitchen at Honeywell. He was always happy and wearing his smile on his face. Always a pleasure to talk with he always saw the bright side of things and he was truly a great friend to have. Sending positive thoughts and prayers to you
