PeeWee, was a kind generous man always had time to visit. He served this great country. I enjoyed the stories of him and Hardrock's trips too Minaki, especially when they landed a large Musky. Glad to have known him.

I am so sorry to hear that Pee Wee died, Hardrock. I have so many fond memories of the fun we had growing up in Nash & our highschool & college days. Even though we've lived far apart & haven't stayed in touch for many years you have remained two of my best friends. RIP Pee Wee
