Dexter, our conversations about taxes always turned to humorous discussions of other subjects; I've always enjoyed talking with you. I am sad that, being in a high risk group for the coronavirus, I can’t come to your service today; I would have liked to have heard the stories your friends will tell. I will miss you, my friend.
