For a Navy man, he could not fish at all. Had to teach him every time.

I am so sorry for OUR loss. I have known Pee Wee since he was a little boy. He grew up with my children, Rita, Paul and Dion; and his mother was one of my best friends. When he felt like talking he would call me and say "Hey Ma, it's Pee Wee". It warmed my heart when he called me "Ma".

I Love You, Carmen and Bryon. May God great you peace during this difficult time. ~Mama Glennie
