RV friend passes away

I have an RV because of our friend. He took us in his for a trip and we were hooked. he had a Holiday Rambler then. The first RV trip he followed us Because it was our "trip" We had a 35j sightseer 2004. He had a monaco dynasty 40ft DP 2005 by then Needless to say he had to poke along behind us but never complained. He at one point had owned over15 different rv's. Everything from a 20 ft class c to a provost. Until his health had stopped him he loved Rving. I bet he rolling around up there now. Just loving the view He will be missed. Thank you Denny for showing me the joy of rving.

He isn't really gone you know. He gave you his gift of joy which you now carry forward and have just shared with all of us. He sounds like the kind of guy who would have liked that idea. Thank you Denny and thank you Sightseer33
