I always knew that Cbz would be there in the morning and would be keeping a watchful eye on his yard. I was worried when I noticed he was missing days and finally asked him what was going on. He told me that he was having tests run.. Even then he wouldn't tell what kind and ask me not to tell anyone..I finally found out, first from another member and second Weldon told me about the cancer and that it wasn't operable. I pm several times and laughed about coffee, pea salad and Dr. Peppers. In one of our last pm he told me he was looking forward to the 4th of July and having bar bq tips, Pea salad and of course DPs......In every board there a person who makes you feel at home and like you belong..He makes it his place, but he welcomes everyone and takes care of them when they are there. I had a minute alone by myself today,not watching the game but thinking about a person I never met and the influence he had on me. Hopefully Pops, some of it wore off on us and we will all be better for it. But you can bet we will not forget you and that awful pea salad..God Bless you and your family
