I have very fond memories of Smokey and Doris coming to the house and playing the guitar when I was a kid. More recently I gave him the most vague directions ever to our southern Indiana property over 2hrs away to go fishing. . He was supposed to call for actual directions. The next day I see a strange vehicle driving down our road and couldn't believe who was behind the wheel. He just said "I told you I could find you" He was a special man and I always like hearing the stories my dad has with him. He was a gentle giant He will be missed!
