Today, I celebrate the birthday of my pal Cuzz Gekas. To most, he is Chuck, but our group had a Chuck, so Cuzz became Cuzz. Somehow, he really fits the Cuzz moniker.
I have known Cuzz for 20+ years. We have had a ton of great times together. We have also had ridiculous conversations, as well as deep ones. I always enjoy talking to Cuzz and learning from him, too.
Cuzz has been a valuable part of Johngy's Beat for many years. He has patiently gone along to many comic cons. Aside from his help, I really appreciate the experiences we have had. I could always find another helper, but I could never find another Cuzz. I greatly appreciate him accompanying me, but I appreciate his friendship even more. That is what makes the events even more special.
I am sure Cuzz is celebrating somewhere today and I hope he enjoys it. I also hope we have many more adventures down the line.
