It was a blessing to know RTee. I always enjoyed stopping by and chatting for hours on end. RTee was very generous and always thought of others. There wasn't a selfish bone in his body. I will miss him and our talks, but Pat and I are comforted that he is with our Heavenly Father and is no longer suffering.
