I always loved Doyle, when m own Father passed in 2003, he stepped up along with my Aunt Sandy, to become another set a parents for me.  The three of us shared many conversations, both serious and hilarious .  On some occasions , he and I even had a few beers together.  They don't make men like this anymore.  I will always remember the great times with him and Sandy and Family, We can all rejoice that he and Sandy are reunited and whole in Heaven. Sail On Cowboy!
