The conversation started, “Man, you look like Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones,” I said with a laugh. “[Laughter] Man, I get that all the time,” he told me. I pulled out the camera and the dancing and posing began. “Wait, is this right, I don’t really know how to dance like Jagger,” he said while laughing.
He then told me about his medical struggles. "I had a heart attack a couple of years ago and they put this vein here [pointing to his chest and then arm], and then a couple of months ago they put in a stint," he said. It was as if he were describing battle wounds of a hard life, talking with a smile that he was still able to stand before me.
"Check this out," he then pulled his pants down. I said, "Wait, where is this going... I don't... No..." I breathed a gasp of relief as he just wanted to show me his American Flag bathing suit that matched his American Flag and Eagle shirt.
Later that evening, myself and a couple of friends drove him to the gas station to get some ice and before he got out of the truck, he made a special effort to pat each of us on the shoulder and say thank you. “God Bless You,” he said as he hopped out of the truck.
