I remember him from when I was only a few years old, coming over and eating cookies and milk. I would call him "cookie monster". <h1>Every so often, my neighbor would call me up for some computer help.</h1> While I was young, living at home, my neighbor lived just a few houses down. When I moved away from home in 2004, we didn't have much to do with each other for about seven years. But when I moved back in 2011 we reconnected as he became my neighbor again. It started with a plea for help with a computer problem (I don't remember what anymore) and I've been his 'computer guy' ever since. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmYWnnYh1aYqygNj7FxE8jsL1L3y6pSQzEHmXFXSCcfusM/image.png) When I reconnected with him as an adult, I had just gotten married and moved into my house. When this photo was taken, I was a family of SIX, still helping with PC problems. Now I'm a family of SEVEN! <h1>What a Great Loss, It's Been Great Calling You Friend</h1> I will miss his calls for computer help and listening to his stories. My children will miss me bringing home ice-cream from Dan's freezer!
