    • Thank you so very much.
      He did seem larger than life to me. Always on the lookout for the next adventure, whether rescuing the Shah of Persia, sailing across the Atlantic, teaching Prince Charles to fly, going to the Oscars, flying me to a party in Palm Springs, going in and out of bars on Bourbon Street at midnight, roller skating along Venice Beach, snorkeling around Tobago, the BVI’s and Bermuda, intercepting ‘Russian bears’ across the skies above the North Sea….
      So many experiences, so many stories to tell.
      I’m glad he made you smile, you would have had a lot to talk about 😊
