Personal Quote:

[on Johnny Wayne's death]: He was lying there and holding my hand so tightly I knew he was saying goodbye. What can you say? What can you do? We had worked together for a whole lifetime. But I could still feel his strength - a young man's strength. He seemed to be saying, 'Ohay, I'm going. We did all right. Wish me well'. See more »
