I know these are usually reserved for famous people who have died. But I'd like to pay tribute to a great American who died yesterday 1/22/08. His name was Leon White. Leon was a decorated Vietnam Vet having recieved 3 Purple Hearts among other medals of valor. He was a father of two and had many friends. He will be sorely missed at the local watering hole where I came to know Leon. I took this picture a couple of years ago of the Beef Baron gang, Leon is second from the right. Leon was the kind of guy who you could trust with your lady when you weren't there. Leon was my Buddy, and is now working the nightshift. Hey Leon, save a couple of stools at that big bar in the sky for me and Lorri.
