OK; my man.
Just returned from a week-end in Tulsa with the Mudville crew. We are all saddened by you early departure; but the upside, you pulled us all together for a great party.

Jennifer (3-Freckles) says Hi; and she misses you and always loved you.
Remember those good days when you & Mary; plus, Janice & I, were together in Miami.  All the kids loved our camping trips to Sycamore Creek. 
Channel 12 in Joplin has cancelled TEEN HOP; because they said...there'd never be anybody like you & Jesse Hailey again.  So; saddle-up my friend and ride off into the sunset.
Oh; I ran into the Bill Davis Group in Tulsa recently; and he asked how the GEORGE STRAIT BAND was doing.  Love you Bro.  God Bless. RIP......Jody Mayer (MHS '63).
