I met dear "Schuie" on construction sites. Being a locksmith, I would shoot the bull with Schuie. He would lend me a drill bit or I'd lend him an extension cord. We shared common ground and always got along like old friends. Then when he bought his Yamaha motorcycle, we talked even more since I had the same bike. Schuie was a humble man yet a great man. He loved his family and friends, and he touched many lives. I was glad to know him. Sorry for your loss...
