I am so sorry for your loss. This man sent me flowers way back in 1989 when I had the chicken pox and missed the St. Pats day parade for the very first time in my life. I was despondent and when his flowers arrived it made me so happy. I will never forget him and he's the reason I love corvettes to this day! RIP G dub. And thank you for teaching me my worth when I was a young girl.
