Each ride with Troy was a learning experience - about music ("those booties are attribute to a Paul Simon song" ??? from A-Shun and me. "Diamonds on the soles of her shoes!"), New Mexico ("Las Vegas? Get the stacked enchilada plate at the Hillcrest restaurant on old Route 66. Best in town!"), iPhone camera lenses, Clif Family winery - a bunch of obscure topics of which he had wide knowledge. On Wednesday, we chatted about holiday plans and he coached me on descending Kennedy and Shannon with wet roads. As I look through my pictures, he's always smiling and usually laughing - such a joy to be around.
I'll miss you, my friend.
