I will forever remember you. How could I ever forget the 15 years I worked for you side by side at the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy? You have been like my older brother with all your words of advice. I treasured that. Filling the Pharmacy with fog from dry ice you poured water on.....from that incident with your compounding Capsaicin cream. There were many more to many to mention. May you rest in peace my friend and my dearest condolences to your family.
