My 89 year old car buddy Ray Kyles passed away suddenly today. He has been going to the Bridgenorth cruise nights with me in the Corvette for the past two summers. We only missed the rained out nights. He was as sharp as a tack to the end, quick with the wit, had a never ending list of jokes and he knew EVERYONE in the area. He and Doug Fulton got along great from the first time that they met. I was over to his place for a cup of tea a couple of days ago and he was fine. Right now, he is in heaven tinkering with an old hit and miss engine. We're going to miss him.
