I was shocked and immensely saddened by Tex's sudden passing.  He was my first and best friend after I moved to Grand Rapids in 1954.  We lived close by and as early playmates were pretty much inseparable.  Our years at Oakdale and GRCHS found us still bonded, and, of course, with other cohorts.  There are stories out there of our many exploits, not all of which are printable, but we occasionally reminded each other of the better ones . . . usually followed by either gales of laughter or headshaking.  As one would expect, our connection changed in susbsequent years with distance, educational and career pursuits, marriages, children and grandchildren, and other of life's obligations and opportunities. Though apart and through it all, we never lost our contact and friendship.  During his final days I didn't get to see Tex, but told him I loved him and promised he would never be forgotten.  Rest in peace, best friend.
