Good bye my friend. You were a great friend and I’ll never forget you. A lot of good times and some bad. The years that we worked together in Kansas City were priceless. The places we went and the stuff we saw was crazy. A lot of good times after work. Just hanging out, going target shooting or listening to some of the crazy songs that you came up with are memories that I’ll never forget. You were a true friend that was always there for me.
You will be missed and I’ll never forget you.

I will never forget you my friend. We made a lot of music together - you, Dave Trabue. Mark DeFeis. and I. One of my favorite memories is the recording session back in 1996 when we recorded your song "Kickin' Leaves" on that old Tascam 4-track of mine. Through that song you will live forever enshrined in the Library of Congress under your copyright. I still have a copy of that recording and will cherish it always. I also remember the time when I was playing in Legacy and had the flu. I was so sick and could barely play and you came out and filled in for me so I could go home and recover. You were a good friend. Always supportive, always dependable, always ready with a joke or anecdote. You will be sorely missed. Rest in peace buddy.

I will miss you my friend. We played a lot of music together, played many a card game and had more fun and adventures than I can remember. RIP Sir. Muskrat!
