I was out in Arizona recently and someone we worked with together told me about it and I didn’t believe them then and I just thought about it and looked it up to see if it was true and I’m so hurt about the situation. I’ve been wanting to speak to his family to anyone close to him or related to see how you were doing if you could please just respond to this message when you see it so I can talk. Thanks
