Hogger was not just a friend, he was family. Actually more than family. I loved him and his brothers and sisters more than I loved my own family. His Mom was my Mom. If it wasn't for the McDaniel family, I wouldn't have had a family at all. I loved Tommy, just like I love Charlotte, Glen, Bill, Lynn and of course Jim. I love you all. Please don't ever forget that. And Clifford is my second Mom. I love her more than life itself. I love all of you. Don't ever forget that. Jimmy
