If I (Russell) may share.
Moved here Late July, 2016. A very hot summer. Got ill, many times outside from the heat and sun.
One day, early August, about 7: a.m., Mr. Murphy came out to get his paper. Saw me working outside. He stopped and called to me. "You finally get it"
You don't work outside past 10 A.M. if you don't want to kill yourself. I looked over and said, You think I would have figured it out a week ago.
He said, consider it a learning experience and welcome to the neighborhood.
A nice neighbor. Always waved.

Mr. Bill, I will miss you so much! After 13 years of working together you were more like family than a co-worker. I will cherish the memories of our times together. I will miss my special treat you brought me occasionally. You always knew when I needed a little extra love. You always had my back and looked out for me. I love you to the moon and back. The bus office will not be the same without you.
