My favorite memory of Homer was in Icy Bay, Alaska! He was showing off for his sweetheart and my good friend Carol. He was popping wheelies on his three wheeler and it flipped up on the back end. He had such a grip on the handle bars that he kept doing spins for what seemed like forever! Carol and i were laughing so hard! I'm still laughing! Homer was a great at man and will be greatly missed! Love you Carol!
