My greatest regret is not complying with Wolcoff's suggestion / invitation to come to the funeral in Arlington. I was busy / poor / old car, just didn't think it would work out. I'm sorry about that now.
The few times I have been to Arlington, I always go by and pay my respects. Its never too late.
