Woog and I have been friends since we were about 5. We had a ton of good times together and even weathered the bad times. He was always calling me up and saying "I need a laugh party with you." He'd be laughin so hard about things...tryin so hard to catch his breath...I'll miss his annual phone call on Valentine's Day to remind me to start my tomatoes indoors. I'm glad for all the memories, but I've really been missing him lately...He always appreciated everything I had to say. He was a rare find in a friend. Last summer I dedicated the song "You find out who your friends are" by Tracy Lawrence to him and he told me he really appreciated that. My most memorable moment with him has to be riding around one time with him and Teichmeier. PICTURE THIS: Teich driving his old car (lop-sided), Woog in the front, no back seat...but Me and Sheep were back there...I think that was the day Woog laughed the hardest EVER! Even Dave T. had a half crooked smile on his face. I'll miss you always my good buddy, Love, Pommy
